Today we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., a man who dared to believe that non-violent protests against the segregation and mistreatment of Negros (now called African-Americans) would change the way they were treated. I began to reflect on what Martin Luther King Day means to me.
My reflections started when my son asked me a question earlier: “Mommy, why do you always care so much about what others do or what happens to others? To me that’s like minding someone else’s business.” So Mommy (that’s me) thought hard about what my son said. “Is it really so? Is it really someone else’s business?” I had to ask myself the question before I answered him.
