    Maybe you guys are going to blog and tweet about it on Monday, but I really liked Secretary Shinseki’s message about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

    In particular, I appreciated the Secretary pointing out that “…Dr. King’s birthday is the convergence of three milestone events marking America’s long march towards freedom and equality for all.” (Read the Secretary’s Message to find out what the ‘three milestone events’ are).

    Powerful, inspiring words from Dr. King, President Lincoln, and the Secretary.
