“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”
This is just one of the many quotable expressions voiced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as he led the Civil Rights Movement in our nation from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968.
For more than three decades, our nation has celebrated his legendary life. January 15, his actual birth date, was observed yesterday as a federal holiday. Post offices, schools, banks, the New York Stock Exchange and a good deal of the American work force had the “day off” on Monday.
Members of the the Nyack College men’s basketball team made it a “day on” as they served residents of the Rockland County community who attended the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast at St. Charles A.M.E. Church in Sparkill, NY.
Throughout the academic year, Head Coach Jason Crafton has his athletes involved in community initiatives such as King Day community outreach—just one more reason to look up to these young men who honor the fallen American hero.
