Today, we celebrate the life, legacy and dream of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Today is also a day of remembrance.  Remembering what Martin Luther King, Jr live and ultimately dying for.

Even though efforts to honor King with a federal holiday began just months after his April 4, 1968 death. President Ronald Reagan signed the established into law in 1983, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was first observed as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986.

With that being said, I'm sure I'm not the only one that was wanting to know if the mail was running today!  After all, we are looking for those W-2's you know!
