Jan 21, 2013

Washington, DC (January 21, 2013) - Today, Congressman Steve Pearce issued the following statement in remembrance of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:

“It is always inspiring and encouraging to remember heroes like Dr. King, and recall how far our nation has come thanks to their efforts,” said Pearce.  “The America that we live in today has made great strides beyond the oppression Dr. King suffered.  And his courageous example reminds us that the seemingly impossible challenges we face today—high unemployment, a mountain of national debt, a seemingly endless recession—can be met by a brave individual willing to speak out.  Today, we remember, and we strive to live lives worthy of the America shaped by men like Dr. King.”
