Martin Luther King Day

Yesterday was Martin Luther King day. I grew up hearing, watching, and reading selections from Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech in school, but it wasn't until two years ago that I listened to it from beginning to end. I decided to make it a tradition since then. My family and I listened again last night, and I did the drawing you see above while listening. Listening Dr. King's speech is always a powerful and sobering experience, and a solemn reminder of what a gift it is to enjoy the rights we possess in the free world today. If you didn't get the chance to listen yesterday, here's a link:

Note: Special thanks to Maggie Gallup and the L. Tom Perry Special Collections for the texture, which they were so kind in allowing me to photograph last week from their 11th century copy of Libri Quattuor Sententiarum. Your kindness will not soon be forgotten.
