Martin Luther King Day at Work
I am a great admirer of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I was really pleased when he got an official day of observance in his honor. Now, I'm not claiming that I would necessarily do something "worthy" if I were not working today. I love the idea that President Obama instituted...that it should be a day of volunteer service. Yet, I'm not claiming I would go out and do volunteer service today if I had the opportunity. What I do feel, though, is that it seems somehow disrespectful to have our library open today. This is a Federal holiday and it just feels wrong for us to be one of the few government type places just saying - meh, what's the big deal?
Do you have any thoughts on this? If so, feel free to share...or just tell us what you did today!
