Today's MLK day of service
Today we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by devoting a whole day to service. I was happy to help out this morning at the Lighthouse by painting their kitchen and lobby. The Lighthouse is a community organization that provides educational, recreational and economic improvement programs. It serves the Kensington and North Philadelphia communities of Philadelphia. Dr. King thrived on non-violent actions and unfortunately Philadelphia has been facing horrible acts of violence. What can we do to better our community? Although, it was great to see so many people come together all over the city for community service, it needs to happen every day. Hopefully we can see change in the future.
