MLK DAY, There is nothing like a snow day, until you have to catch up. Today, thousands of children are in class one day when they would otherwise be out of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It sickened many people, including a Member State in Rock Hill, who wants to make “day MLK”n’est not used again as a makeup day. But he said his constituents have also requested to ensure that Confederate Memorial Day not be used in the same way.
Rock Hill is one of several schools in districts that made people unhappy by sending children to the classroom on Martin Luther King Day. District spokeswoman Elaine Baker hopes that more parents will be interference on hand when school is in session President’s Day and Memorial Day. She says the holidays are not always used to take over, but budget cuts have made a difference in Rock Hill.
“We are accustomed in the past have used days as instructional days of catching up, but this year with five of them that day furlough limited between January and May only three holidays and spring break” said Baker.
State representative John King is one of those unfortunate. But while others may sound out of the neighborhood, he can write laws. He is working on a bill those school districts not to use Martin Luther King Jr. Day as snow makeup day.
“While we should maximize educational opportunities for every child in South Carolina, we should also be aware of the heritage and the struggle of South Carolina, said the king.
As Representative King has heard from constituents, a day does not encapsulate the full fight. He received several calls asking also ensure Confederate Memorial Day is not used as a snow makeup day. It became a holiday state of South Carolina in 2000, when the state legislature designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as such. While the king has never celebrated Confederate Memorial Day, he says he is ready to make that part of his bill.
“I know people who firmly believe in the Confederate Memorial Day in my neighborhood, and even if my beliefs may be different, I took an oath of office to be fair and impartial in my decisions and I received calls calls on both sides, “said the king.
“Hate can not drive out hate”
“The violence of the polling for violence multiplies violence, adding more darkness to a night already devoid of stars…. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. “” Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community
At the peak of his career, the Rev. Martin Luther King gave 450 speeches and traveled over 325,000 miles per year. Ultimately, his speeches and writings fill hundreds of pages, but not all the material unique. Throughout his career, Dr. King often reused lines in his speeches, including this one, which appeared in several places in the mid to late 1960.
