Happy MLK Day!

If you're on Twitter or Facebook, it would seem as if the entire nation is in D.C. right now. But for those of us who aren't there, today is a day off from work. It's a great day to clean up the house, watch your favorite DVDs, shovel snow, watch CNN (for what's going on in D.C.), go to the mall for one of those infuriating MLK sales that just can't be beat or just simply be a bum.

But seriously, on the day that is national recognized as the King Holiday and on the eve of one of the most significant Inaugurations in history and clearly the most exciting one in decades, President-Elect Obama has asked that renew our nation, by making "enduring commitments to our neighborhoods" through service. This is something that is very close to my heart that began for me when I was a little boy attending a little Methodist Church in Chicago.

To sweeten the deal, President-Elect Obama's taken most of the guesswork out of his challenge by launching: USAService.org. Here you can find where, when and and how to donate your time, talents, goods and sweat-equity. Or you can host an event yourself. I love it!
