This Monday, January 16th, is Martin Luther King day. As an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteer In Service To America) I believe in giving of yourself in whatever capacity you can. I was blessed with the ability to do a full year of service. For most people that’s not an option. What anyone can do though is take at least one day a year and dedicate it to helping others.
I don’t really need to tell the you about days of service. After all it was Pennsylvanian senator Harris Wolford who co-authored the bill creating the King Holiday and Service act. So if you have the day off, do something as pleasant as walking a trail and picking up litter, or get gritty helping at the recycling plant. Whatever you do, honor the memory of Reverend King, and reach out somewhere to help.
We try to be Living Greener every day but some are more important than others and this is one!
