Today is the observed holiday of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday (did you know he was actually born on the 15th?) and I volunteered with the Young Education Professionals of DC to paint and beautify a high school in DC. I think one of the nicest things about Days of Service are that for whatever reason one chooses to participate, you are doing something good. What’s especially cool is that DC Met, the school we volunteered at today, is the focus of an upcoming documentary (more info: http://blackpublicmedia.org/dc-met) about school reform. How amazing! I’m so thankful I was able to play a small part in making DC Met a happier, cheerier place today. In my mind it was the perfect way to honor Dr. King.
What’d you do to celebrate the legacy of Dr. King?
This is a picture of one of the doors I painted – after taping, before painting…
And here we have a different door, post painting…lookin’ good!
