On Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday with MLK day, a federal holiday and national day of service. 

Among Dr. King’s many gifts was his ability to spread his message of racial equity and community through the power of words. 

In celebration of a man who made each word count, this week’s Six-Word Caption Contest on sixwordmemoirs.com asks you to sum up the photo you see here in a half-dozen well-chosen words. Tell us in the comments section, below.

Hmmmm. The fact of the matter is that MLK was a drug using womanizer who even ridiculed, and made jokes about, JFK during his funeral. Amazing that schools are closed for this one guy, yet they're wide open on Veterans day, when we're supposed to honor the hundreds of thousands of men & women who gave their life for this country over the centuries.
