On Saturday, January 19, 2013, the wonderful organization of First Book that supplies books for thousands of children was part of the National Day of Service started by President Obama to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This day is a wonderful idea: it’s a chance to start all Americans talking, thinking and working on the many ways we can serve our nation. I was especially proud for First Book included Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in its 7,500 book packs for children. Thousands of kids received books that day.
And someone snapped a photograph of an actor who was very interested in learning about Dr. King.
