This is my favorite holiday and one that is not a political statement, but just one that I have personally experienced.
I don’t like politics, but I do like to celebrate some of my favorite people.
I love MLK, because he was my dad and I’m a proud grandson of the man.
I was a little boy and he was a big man and I want to celebrate that honor.
I’m not just saying this because I like the holiday itself, but because I also know that many people don’t get to celebrate it, even if they have their own holiday.
It is an opportunity to be part of history, a way for the people who were born here today to have a holiday that they can be proud of.
I am not going to say this is political, but if you were born in the US and you wanted to celebrate MLK birthday, you can.
It’s just not something that we have the right to do.
