Come celebrate birthdays with cake and refreshments on January 15! It’s a big day: the hero of my childhood, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have turned 81 on January 15. That’s reason enough to celebrate. His life and his death had a big impact upon me and our country!
As a child moving to Arkansas during the days of segregation, I felt in my soul the pain of separation and prejudice based upon color. I didn’t understand the separate drinking fountains and entrances. Hearing Dr. King speak, stirrings of hope and truth rang clear.
Believing that all life is a gift, I think the day of our births are worthy of celebration. January 15 is also my birthday, and I’m honored to have been born on Martin Luther King’s day!
I invite you to come stay at Lookout Point, have a slice of celebratory cake and a glass of wine or tea, and share a dream. I hope to see you on my birthday. 🙂
