Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!!

I just stood in line for 2 hours to get free tickets to Let Freedom Ring, the India Arie concert at the Kennedy Center, at 6pm tonight. So that's exciting!

MLK Jr. Day is a great time to reflect on the Civil Rights Movement of the past...but more importantly, it is a good time to think about all those who still lack basic human rights around the world.
Last year, President Obama called on Americans to take MLK Jr. Day as a Day of Service and do something good for your community. It's not too late - just go to this website and enter in your zip code to find volunteer opportunities near you.

And don't worry - there will be cake tomorrow!
