A Day On, Not A Day Off

Tomorrow is our day of service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is also a day when I really miss Mimi. We always spent the day together in service - it was a tradition for us. The last year we worked together she made some amazing stencils that were used for a bulletin board at Walden Middle School. Faculty at the school still talk about the art. Tomorrow we will be at a Senior Center that is located just a few blocks from the King Center. Senior citizens will be on hand to share with us their memories of Auburn Avenue during the Civil Rights Movement. Mimi, I learned so much from you. Here is me arriving for our volunteer day in 2005 in the 24 degree weather. We left the day of service to go walk in the parade on one of the coldest days of the year. Mimi, what are you doing tomorrow?
