We had the privilege this year to participate in a MLK celebration. Emily sang in a musical with other children, most (if not all) of whom were African-American. It was amazing on so many levels....coming together with others who are different from us, supporting our community in it's entirety rather than the pieces that we fit into "best", and truly stopping to honor a man who changed the face of our nation and our world. Emily also loved, on the simplest level, making new friends and singing. She did a great job with her line, "predjudice or injustice"! Here she is dressed and ready to go and one of her at the performance.
