Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. 

"We hold these truths to be self-evident" is like "it goes without saying." Something or some situation is making your point necessary to say. It is NOT evident to something or someone. Regardless of how true it is, sometimes it needs to be said. And said often.
In the face of adversity and even, sadly, death.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.  

The first truth of our Declaration of Independence was and sometimes, is, not so evident.



Usually with when a "day" is established, you can add "happy" to the front of it and wish someone a nice day (or a nice sale). 

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, though, that doesn't seem right. So, instead, do something nice.  From a service project to a smile for a stranger to paying for someone's order in the drive through.  Anything you can think of to brighten someone's day.  And don't just do it today.

I bet someone will say, "It goes without saying, but thank you."
