In honor of M.L.K. Day, here are some things maybe you didn't know about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

-He wasn't a big fan of Malcolm X and his ideals.

-He has a bust on display in the White House.

-He inspired Barack Obama to become president.

-Just like Barack Obama, he won both a Grammy and a Nobel Peace Prize.

-It wasn't until the year 2000 that all 50 states officially observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

-There are over 700 streets in the United States named after Martin Luther King Jr.

-He had a bachelor's degree in sociology.

I could go on and on about Dr. King's amazing accomplishments in his short life. I hope we all take time to reflect on the vision he had for our country.
