In a sermon given shortly before he died, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – whose 90th birthday would have been on January 15 – talked about living until age 90.  “You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be, and one day some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause.  You refuse to do it because you are afraid….Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you are just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90.”

We are grateful to students from Catholic University of America, and Penn State University, who are volunteering in our Habitat for Humanity ReStore as part of their MLK Day of Service in honor of Dr. King.
