National Day of Service 1.19.09

My little revolutionary and i will be taking part in the National Day of Service tomorrow, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There are dozens of events going on in this area to commemorate the event... from planting trees, pulling weeds, food drives, clothing drives, and marches. President-elect Barack Obama's site calls it a day to "renew America together." If you wanna find an event near you (and chances are you'll find one, with 10,000 going on nationwide), here's the link:

"History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."
