January 12, 2018

“Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail. If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from a speech before a group of students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia, October 26, 1967

For more information on how New York State is paying tribute to the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., please visit the New York State Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday Memorial Observance website.
