“At this moment of great challenge and great change, I am asking you to play your part, to roll up your sleeves and join in the work of remaking this nation. And if you do, than I truly believe a new and better day is within our reach”
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and the Inauguration of our new president, Americans are being asked to join in a nationwide call for service on Jan. 19. The day is being promoted by President-elect Barack Obama and his wife as a Day of Service in which all Americans are asked to give some of their time, anyway they can.
