...magnetic MLK

Hello. Martin Luther King Day is celebrated on the third Monday in January, always around his birthday. If you have never heard of this man, Google him. My cousin SSO is one of eight recipients of the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award. This is an honor bestowed by Johns Hopkins Institutions to those employees and members of the Johns Hopkins System who make a significant contribution to society through their community service. She was honored for her work with the Tyanna Barre O'Brien Breast Cancer Foundation, which raises money for breast cancer research and materials for Mercy Medical Center. She too has a magnetic personality and looks fab in red. On this day in 1909 Ernest Shackleton's expedition found the magnetic South Pole. That same year his brother Ted starred in the hit TV show "Knots Landing." Have a great day, have a heart and try to be magnetic...unless you are in the tool aisle of Home Depot. That could be a painful thing.

"A man can't ride your back unless it's bent."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
