We've got to have a holiday

he talked about love
about unification
talked about love
and dedication
he wanted to see peace
across the nation
call for an end to world starvation
feel the heart's inspiration
he used the world as his foundation

we need a proclamation
some sign of our affection
we've got to have a holiday
Martin Luther King

Amazingly, it wasn't until 2000 that all 50 states officially recognized Martin Luther King, Jr. day as a holiday. We've still got a ways to go.
