How do you feel today?    I feel ...

I proposed legislation in 1994 making the Martin Luther King holiday a day of community service and action rather than just a day off from work. Dr. King was more than just a teacher or a preacher. He was a man of action, and I suggested that we could honor his memory best by making this a duty of sharing and caring and acting on the principles of community and connec tion.
