While long weekends are great for a good time, don’t forget to take time to reflect on what this weekend is truly about. Head to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the National Mall to remember that we are all a part of his dream. The last weekend before we bid a final farewell to our President, let’s not forget MLK’s message; “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
