Almost every Cope Eagle, whether teacher or student, looks forward to MLK Day to have a restful day off from homework or teaching. However, the national holiday was started not for this meaning but to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and his quest for equal rights for all people. Tragically, he was assassinated by people who opposed his movement on April 4, 1968. MLK Day is the third Monday in January due to this being around the date of MLK’s birthday, January 15th. This 21st, remember why MLK Day was created, and remember Martin Luther King Jr.
