Thankfully, this Monday holiday seems not to be going the way of the parade or shopping holiday. In remembrance of Martin Luther King's legacy, the "Day of Service" is becoming a bit more ingrained. In Washington, DC, there were a variety of projects and film screenings. Philadelphia had a site to promote service on this day and throughout the year in MLK's honor, as well as resources. The national site for MLK Day was a central site for activities for the day and expanding service to a full 40 days.
The Washington Post has a nice collection of articles, video, blogs on MLK, as well as a photo gallery for the day's celebrations. Of course, the best site is that of the King Center, itself. So many people sought it out yesterday, that it crashed and has yet to recover today.
