How Should You Best Honor Dr. King?

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - While today is a celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, it's also become a day for service. And that raises the question - how should the day best be commemorated?

The web site http://www.mlkday.gov/ challenges people to specifically use the day to do things for others.

"You don't have to be a big person and you don't have to have a lot of education, but everybody can serve somebody else," said Edward Henry, head of Salisbury High School Association's Annual Youth Day, honoring Dr. King.

But with service projects around the country, some say the day should be renamed as one of service in honor of Dr. King's mission.

WMDT checked with a few people, and here's what they believe.

"All of the trials and tribulations he went through because of his beliefs, I think he should be honored," said Josephine Lynn.

Denise White has a slightly different opinion.

"I think it's both things," White said. "It's a great day to honor Dr. King and all of the things he's already provided for us as African Americans, and it's also a great time to give thanks and give back to the community."
