Monday, January 18th is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, where we honor and remember the influential civil rights leader:
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
–Martin Luther King Jr. (1929–68)
Of course, many kids are off from school, many offices are closed, and many businesses offer sales – here are freebies and sales I’ve found!
