i think that it should be like thanksgiving and all the other national holidays because it is in remembrance of the man that helped shape the way the US is today.
I think of this day as a reminder to what the US used to be like and what has become of it.
So yea its important. I say its like the 4th of July.
cause they are both independence days and MLKD is like the beginning of the blacks being able to become full citizens.
