THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CELEBRATION AND MARCH ON MLK DAY. THERE ARE OTHER THINGS WE COULD BE DOING IN ORDER TO HELP THE COMMUNITY. I THINK TO MUCH EFFORT AND EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THOSE ACTIVITIES. I WONDER IF YOU TOLD THE SAME PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO MARCH IF THEY WERE GOING TO HELP PICK UP TRASH IN THOMASTON, GOING TO NURSING HOME TO SPEND TIME WITH THE ELDERLY, HAVING A READING NIGHT FOR YOUNG CHILDREN,OR SOME OTHER TYPE OF COMMUNITY RELATED ACTIVITY WOULD THEY STILL BE THERE. MLK DAY SHOULD BE ALL YEAR LONG AND IM ONE OF THE GUILTY ONES WHO JUST CELEBRATE THE DAY. LETS ALL TRY TO DO ONE THING POSITIVE FOR THE COMMUNITY IN 09 AND I THINK WE WILL HAVE ALL SERVED MLK DAY WELL.
