1/28/2009 Thank You for Making History
  This has been a great month for service. Last Monday, you made history by helping organize the largest King Day of Service ever, as Americans across the nation came out in record numbers to honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through service to others. Last Tuesday, in an Inaugural Address viewed across the nation and around the world, President Obama saluted the American spirit of service and called for a new era of responsibility – “" recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character than giving our all to a difficult task."
