Athens is a great town, with a bunch of nice restaurants, fantastic music, and art. And of course, there is UGA! We are also rich in civil rights and community activism. I think it is important to be involved in community events, especially related to civil rights.
Athens, like many towns across the country, celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. today. The morning was dedicated to a day of service and the afternoon was the first MLK day parade. I love to participate in these things, because they provide the “glue” in a community. Athens has some very dedicated and wonderful people, and I was happy to spend the day celebrating with them.
