Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day everyone! This is not only a day off from school and classes, but it is more importantly a day to celebrate the life and legacy of a great civil rights leader! His sermons, writings, and speeches have greatly impacted this world and impacted all types of people in this world!

"It seems to me that education has a two-fold function to perform in the life of man and in society: the one is utility and the other is culture. Education must enable a man to become more efficient, to achieve with increasing facility the legitimate goals of his life."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Morehouse College Student Paper, 1947

Take some time today to reflect on the power of education and what all people have sacrificed over the years to gain one. Also take time to think about your education and on the education you want! Exactly as Dr. King says, "Education must enable ... the legitimate goals of his [or her] life." Reflect on your educational goals today, what you want to accomplish, what you want to learn; those easily and not so easily attainable! Find those dreams and use education to fuel them! 

enjoy the chase,
