Guam - In celebration of his legacy, the Serve Guam Commission and AmeriCorps hosted a special ceremony this morning for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
The theme of this year's festivities was "Moving Forward in Unity" that kicked off with a wave in Hagatna and featured a legislative resolution by Senator Frank Aguon Jr. and a proclamation signing by Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio.
"Martin Luther King, who was a fantastic not just icon in our nation's history, but also was a representative of change, he was an agent of change in our country, was able to bring about fantastic things for the rights of every person no matter where they come from," he said.
Island leaders not only encourage Guamanians to remember and celebrate the passion Martin Luther King Jr. had in achieving equality for all people, but to let his legacy be an example of civic leadership and service.
