“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?" #martinlutherking
There are many ways we individually choose to help others everyday, but there is undeniable strength when many do an act of service or
kindness at one time. Some are grand public efforts and others are small silent acts of kindness, but in our eyes they all count.
As we approach this great American national holiday this upcoming Monday, we hope that each of us take a moment to do some act of kindness
on this day of service, privately or publicly, and that you join us in raising your flags high today. If you are so inclined to share what you plan to
do, we’d love to see pictures of you either doing your act of service or your showing us your #flaglove #mlkdayofservice #kalamazooflagco
Lastly, if you are looking for ideas on how to celebrate there are many organized city events to celebrate MLK’s Day of Service around Michigan,
