Three Excellent Reasons to thank Dr. King...
The day after Thanksgiving this past November, Steve, Kristiana, Daniel, and I went to the church to have our photo taken for the church directory. Steve brought along our camera, and we took pictures while we waited for our turn.
These three beautiful, funny, happy, silly, life-affirming, and life-consuming people are my top three reasons to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Steve and I would probably not be married, and we certainly would not be living here in North Carolina if it weren't for Dr. King's life and the work he did to bring about freedom and equality for people of all races and socioeconomic classes in our nation.
The only photo I will comment on is this last one. It's the perfect picture of the three of us. I am talking. Daniel is clowning around. And Kristiana is sitting quietly in the background wondering what she did to deserve the crazy family she lives in.
