Martin Luther King Day!

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
“If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. but whatever you do, you have to keep moving.”
-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
