Today on January 16th, we observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Always the third Monday of the year, MLK Day is seen as “a day on, not a day off”. The only federal holiday designated as a national day of service, people all over the country are encouraged to volunteer and improve their communities in Dr. King’s memory.
This day of remembrance pays tribute to Dr. King’s impact on the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s through his revolutionary leadership. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. achieved such genuine progress toward racial equality that he has come to be among the greatest nonviolent leaders in world history.
The King Center in Atlanta has cited that Dr. King is the only non-president to have a national holiday dedicated in his honor, not to say it came without a fight.
We’re calling it now—2023 is the year of the commuter.
The world is ushering in a new era of transportation with electrification at the forefront, and seeing commuters change their behavior—or at least try—is not unrealistic.
Especially in the beginning of the new year, people are looking to make small positive changes in their daily life that we have come to know as resolutions. A great place to start is by improving something we all do every single day—moving around our world.
The key to any good gift is choosing something thoughtful, useful, and affordable. Can’t bare the thought of giving another candle, fuzzy blanket, or gift card? We have an interesting avenue to go down for gift giving.
