My daughters and I have tomorrow off - my husband's students do, but he has a staff development day. In the store yesterday, the Lone Star Baby expressed some concern:
LSB: We have Monday off because of the March, right? (She is referring to the local March honoring Dr. King's memory.)
Me: (hedging on the fact that her school is calling it a "weather day") Yes.
LSB: But some people don't go to the March! Why should they have it off?
Me: Well, the March is not the only way to honor Dr. King. There are lots of things people can do - it is a Day of Service and people do all kinds of different service projects...like we are doing our toiletries drive and the March. Other people do other things.
LSB: But some people don't do anything.
Me: Well, yes.
LSB: Everyone should do something.
There you have it, people - from the mouths of babes: do something.
