"It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small"
For the Active signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn): The chemistry in your workplace is off on Monday and Tuesday, further complicating everything. Wednesday and Thursday are weird and cloudy, and Friday finds you strangely torn between two friends. All of this oddness adds up to a weekend in which you may not feel like doing anything more than sticking around the house and chilling out.
For the Determined signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius): It doesn’t really matter what you do at the start of the week — you’re going to have a good time regardless. Wednesday and Thursday will be interesting but not in ways you like — stubbornness and greediness are double-whammy themes. But Friday you’ll get to go to a lecture that taxes your brain in beautiful ways.
For the Flexible signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces): If there’s a pizza in your life Monday, don’t dawdle when it’s time to take your share — or you might not get any at all. On Tuesday, there’s tension between you and your coworkers, but by Wednesday, you’ve turned that on its head, thanks to the force of your personality. Friday and the weekend require you to be in constant communication with others.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU WATCH ON TV OR WHAT KIND OF PACK RAT ARE YOU?
The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior was a pastor, crusader and the youngest man ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. His name has become synonymous with the civil rights struggle.
He enrolled in Morehouse College at age 15 and found his calling. Before graduating with a sociology degree, he was ordained a minister. In 1955, King earned a PhD in theology from Boston University.
On August 28th, 1963, a quarter-million people marching on Washington, D.C. to demand civil rights heard his "I Have a Dream" speech. "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident -- that all men are created equal."
Two decades after that momentous speech, the third Monday in January was made a federal holiday commemorating his birthday. Since the first observance on January 20th, 1986, it has been an occasion for people to remember King's life and re-dedicate themselves to achieving that dream.
In 1964, at age 35, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1968, King went to Memphis to support a strike by sanitation workers, most of whom were black.
On April 4th, he was assassinated while standing on a balcony at the Lorraine Motel. His death sparked riots across America. The Lorraine has since been converted into a national civil rights museum.
