Happy Martin Luther King Birthday for everyone here!
By the way, this is called Lee-Jackson-King Day in Virginia.
It is that because they combined the three Robert E. Lee, Andrew "Stonewall" Jackson and Martin Luther King in the same day.
In this day is often observed with special topics at schools about Ms. King life and work.
