Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by Celebrating Diversity

Every year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day we honor this great man by celebrating his life and talking about who he was and how very important is in our history.  We also talked about how Dr. King forever changed our country through his courageous leadership qualities.  Every year we do a project or activity to honor Dr. King.  This year Grace, Jack and Eve did their own separate projects.  

Grace decided to trace her hands on colored paper representing different skin tone colors.  When Grace was finished she cut out the hands, linked them together in a chain and wrote Dr. King's famous words, "I Have A Dream."  I love how Grace's project represents how Dr. King joined hands with people of all colors as he marched for equality.  

It is so vital in today's world that we teach our children to be the best people they can be.  This includes being accepting of all people for who they are and loving the differences in everyone.  These differences are what make us all beautiful.  We can find beauty in everything we see, in everyone, and especially in the many beautiful colors that make up all of the people in our world.
