Martin Luther King Jr. remembered with day of peace and activism

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man who stood for peace. He once stated, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Through his persistent work as a primary nonviolent activist and voice within the civil rights movement, he changed the United States of America as we know it, and he changed the lives of all those who would come after him in this country.
