Yikes! Since January 1, I have had computer problems–and then I had more computer problems. I was sick–and then I got sick again. Now I’m better–much better, and I’m ready to begin a new year.

It’s still January–the month when we celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday. He died more than 50 years ago, but his words are relevant today.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter,” Dr. King once said.
