Today, we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Though this day is set aside to just honor Dr. King, I can’t help, on this day, to also recall the legacy of another hero of mine: Robert F. Kennedy.
Maybe, we can use this day off to take a pause and, like my two heroes, Martin and Bobby, not just talk about making America great again, but actually do it.
All human beings are 99.9 percent identical in their genetic makeup.  Ninety-nine percent! That means our cultural and cuisine differences, our contrasts in dance and music, our variation of hair, eye and skin color all amount to just one-percent of one percent!
That also means all our frustrations with one another, our political divides, our cliques, our conflicts — even our wars … yes, our wars! — all stem from the fact that we put so much effort pointing out the 0.1% in our neighbor that makes us different, instead of taking time to focus on the 99.9% that ever person on the planet has in common.
So, today, instead of the pittance that divides us, let’s use this day to focus on the treasure chest of wealth that binds us all together … just like my two heroes.
