MLK Weekend

Last weekend, J. L., a few of my students, and I celebrated the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by doing service projects at the American Red Cross.

Together with students from other local universities, we prepared emergency comfort kits. Whenever there's a natural disaster, a home fire or anytime where people need basic comfort the Red Cross brings these bags with tooth brushes, tooth paste, wash clothes, soap, combs, etc.

Afterwards we had a little reflection on the service and on Dr. King's teachings. It was a great event!
