    Default Martin Luther King Jr. Day

    have a happy one. enjoy your day off and remember someone out there cared enough about your well being to challenge the world.



    Martin Luther King Jr. Day


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    It's funny, I have some friends who have to work today. Such racist companies! Tommorrow is my birthday so I'm having a bunch of friends over to play video games and just relax.

    Yeah, I'm going to work in 10 minutes.

    ...Never really saw the point of Martin Luther King Day. Rosa Parks started it all, if not MLK, it would have been someone else that did what had to be done. I personally think we should celebrate her, not MLK...

    yeah true, but he was the one who really put himself out there and got famous things done. But ya know Rosa has the entire month of February to share and feel all fuzzy about in her grave... she knows we all love her.

    I've got the day off from school. Thus, I am happy.

    Regarding MLK vs. Rosa Parks...meh. Both were great people. MLK deserves his own day, though, I'd say.

    But then again, I'm not the person to judge who deserves a holiday. I'd give Hitler a holiday if it got me out of school, and I'm Jewish.

    forgive us, we're canadian. *shrugs* the whole holiday thing like that is odd for us

    The guy did some great things though. So did Rosa. It's a nice time to remember all the strong people who fought for social freedoms.

    Free at last, free at last. God allmighty, we are free at last.

    If you don't celebrate, whether you're white, black, or asian, and you're from the United States, you're an asshole.

    sorry for the harsh words, but it's true.
