Why is Martin Luther King Day One of Your Favorite Holidays?

As I’ve written before, I have some historical reasons for considering Martin Luther King Day as one of my favorite holidays. I was also thinking today that this is a reflective holiday, one that allows you some welcome time to reflect after the hustle and bustle of the Christmas / New Year’s / winter holiday season.
For 2006, I thought I’d note the day by linking to some of the posts on the day that I especially enjoyed from people like Dan Oestrich, Halley Suitt, Heather Leigh, Bernard Hibbitts, Joyce Wycoff, Lisa Stone, Tom Watson, Betsy McKenzie, Troy Worman, Doc Searls, W. David Stephenson, Paul Caron, Don Blohowiak, Tony Colleluori, Ernster the Virtual Library Cat, Will Richardson, and Marty Schwimmer.
From MLK: “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality.”

    Thanks so much for the mention. I agree that MLK day is one of the really meaningful holidays we’ve got. You’ve done a fine service in collecting the links, Dennis. Very cool.
