Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Thank Our City Workers!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Des Moines Public Schools had planned to use MLK day as a snow make up, but it was overturned by the school board based on good speaking and listening skills of many people.

MLKDr. King  would be proud of the process involving our community and his holiday!

I also think he would appreciate students being in the classroom on January 21 learning and growing! He obviously had a passion for education, as did his wife Coretta, and knew how important learning is at every age. I totally agree!

I have more to learn about MLK and how his life continues to evolve throughout communities across our country. 

Green garbage truckThankfully, every Tuesday morning the garbage in my hood gets picked up!

The evening before he was assassinated, MLK was prepared to lead a protest march to help support striking garbage workers.  He was just doing his job to help others do their job.

Thank you to the city garbage workers and thank you to the city street sweepers. I appreciate your work. Des Moines is a beautiful city filled with people who care about our community and I’m proud to live here.

Street sweeperI hear the sweeper on my street quite a few times throughout the year and rush to watch it pass by my house!

Thank you Dr. King for all you’ve done, especially for your call to service helping working people across the nation. I’m particularly fond of this quote:  

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” ~ a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King.

Be the best you can be at what you do as an attorney. Let me know if you’d like my help to help you help your client on a case involving work and disability!!
