During the past week, we honored the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. At the Educator’s Breakfast, our 32nd annual parade, the All-People’s breakfast and San Diego State’s annual tribute to Dr. King, we remembered how Dr. King changed our country and our lives. We considered the role that his philosophy of non-violence played, and continues to play, in creating social change. We reflected on his practice of community organizing and its continuing influence on our democratic process. Most of all, we recognized that while we have made substantial progress, we have much work to do and that, above all else, this must be the year in which we act to realize Dr. King’s ideals.
