The Importance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day

On the evening of April 4, 1968 my college dorm room door swung open. A student stuck his head in with a smile on his face and said, “They got the King!” What a tragedy, I thought. I had no words for him that day. My heart cried out for King, the movement, and our nation. I knew it was not just about King, but about people of worth to God — which is everyone — our nation, and our Christian influence.
