On the morning of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I sat on the steps of City Hall, thinking about everything that made Dr. King a transcendent of his time and a beloved treasure of our time. I thought about my hometown, predominantly housed by minorities, local politics led by minorities, and not one event on the calendar to honor Dr. King's day.
Luckily, CareTrenton led by Elissa Horan, had a volunteerism gathering that began on 600 Hamilton Avenue. Jacque Howard of The Trenton 365 Show on 1300 WIMG told me about it the night before. I'm glad I attended. Teenagers from all over Central Jersey showed up and got right to work on cleaning up the area.
We must hold onto King's Dream. A breakfast with your colleagues isn't enough. Get out there and be of service to the City of Trenton. Check out the video below of our day.
