Today is Martin Luther King Day in the United States. On this day we celebrate the life and work of one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known. I want to take a few minutes and reflect on what is commonly referred to as his “I Have a Dream” speech.
It helped give me some inspiration to write my K12, Inc Blog post:
January 17, 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday and many states are encouraging Americans to use this holiday as a way to give back. Make sure you and your family visit the MLK Day of Service website to find get information about this effort and find projects that “strengthen communities, empower individuals, bridge barriers, and create solutions” – all actions that can help make our world a better place to live.
Here’s to helping create the next generation of Great leaders!

Today is my Dad’s Birthday. I don’t see him very often but he has been doing the Skype thing with us so the kids get to know their grampa. It’s so amazing how different our kids are growing up with technology in their lives than I did. Back when I was Hannah’s age, making a long distance phone call was expensive so I didn’t get to know my grandparents very well. Makes me sad when I think about it — they have so much to offer their grandchildren in their experiences, memories and love.
