In observance of this holiday, I ventured to UrbanDictionary and found the following definitions for Martin Luther King Jr.:
- "A great civil rights leader who has been honored by having a day that nobody remembers and a street in the ghetto that is very dangerous."
"The modern day Jesus. He died so kids could have no school for a day."
I also reflected upon MLK's "dream." Some say that his dream will be realized tomorrow when the first president of color is sworn in.
I had a dream, too.
I had a dream last night that Amanda and I were skiing and trying to dodge Smurfs stuck in the snow. Every time we hit a Smurf it blew up into blueberries that floated up in the air.
