Earlier this week, I had the great honor of being the National Day of Observance Speaker in a symposium sponsored by the National Institutes of Health in commemoration of the birth date of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was particularly taken with the title of the program, “Remember! Celebrate! Act!” Those words are a clear challenge to all of us. We need to actively remember, celebrate and act upon the enduring legacy Dr. King gave us. It is a challenge we can’t refuse.
I wish everyone a happy and thoughtful Martin Luther King Day holiday this year.
