This was a beautiful and well-orchestrated tribute to a very great man. Thanks to all who put this celebration of MLK's life together. I

I had the great privilege to see MLK at Stanford University in 1965. I had no idea what a historical occasion that was.

I hope that we can focus on the civil rights of all people (including our kids in the district) and realize the dream fully.

I know that Dr. King would also be concerned about our unhoused brothers and sisters. In light of the recent criminalization of living in one's vehicle, I would like to include treating the unhoused in a more humane way as a civil right that we may want to focus on.
