MLK gets a lot of high praise, and a lot of serious celebration. But I feel that we often celebrate the grand scale, macro achievements of his. I pose that we all take a moment and look inwards; let's be thankful for what the good reverend did for us, today.

I'll start things off. This July, I'll be marrying a beautiful white girl. Not only are her parents okay with it, they're through the roof. It may seem like a little thing, but just two or three generations ago this would have been quite taboo. So I'll take the day today and celebrate a man who decades ago made my life possible today.
