So, I was going to post today about my usual trials and tribulations . . .


About how I hung out at home until 9:45 am and then headed over for a 10 am hair appointment, only to find out it was at noon . . .


About how I then stopped in at Nick's Deli for one of his world famous breakfast burritos, and added a cupcake on top of that . . .


About how I pitched a fit about how overwhelmed I am with a workload that is crushing me, and how much it pisses me off when I walk past the office two doors down from mine to see a salaried employee with no work on her desk, staring at her computer . . .


About how my neighbor keeps using my hose to wash his motor home . . .


But then I was reminded that this is the 40th anniversary of the assasination of Martin Luther King, Jr., (who amazingly was only 39 when he died), and I thought I could perhaps post something more inspirational than the above . . .


So, in the words of Dr. King:


"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom."

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

"The time is always right to do what is right."

Great quotes!

I hate how some people don't even bother to look like they are busy at work!

That's a good way to keep everything in perspective.
