Answering Life’s Most Persistent Question (with your children)

on January 22, 2015

Life's most <br />persistent <br />and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others? Martin Luther King Jr. | #mlk, #martinlutherking, #martinlutherkingjr, #authorquotes, #famousquotesAs the week honoring the contributions of Martin Luther King comes to a close, another way to celebrate him comes to mind.  Since 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service.   Although the day has passed, the ability to teach your child or your students about the importance of service remains.  I have located several blogs that give some amazing ideas regarding ways that you can get your children involved in serving others.  The service should also coincide with a conversation about why doing service projects are so important.   We must give back to the community because it creates a world where we can relate to others and also, every act of service is an opportunity to learn something about people, communities and government.

Scan the following blogs and schedule a day that you can complete a project with the children in your life.

These are just a few of the millions ideas out there to provide a way for your family or classroom to make a difference.   I would love to hear stories in the comments below.
