KATIE: It's a national holiday, Waffles.
WAFFLES: COOL! You mean like National Waffles Day? I bet EVERYONE will want to celebrate!
KATIE: Waffles, this isn't that kind of holiday. It's not some made up craziness celebrating breakfast food and orange cats. Today Americans are honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
WAFFLES: Was he a famous vet or something?
KATIE: No, Waffles. He wasn't a vet. He was a pastor, humanitarian and a leader in the civil rights movement. He believed in equality, compassion and service. On #MLKDay, people across the country are urged to come together for a day of service.
WAFFLES: Service? Like room service? Still sounds like breakfast to me.
KATIE: Seriously, Waffles. You are not right in the head. Today is about making a commitment to our communities. For example, helping shelter cats in our community. Helping our neighbors. Today and everyday.
WAFFLES: Ok, I get it. Like donating food and toys to the Feline Rescue cats. Or sending Glogirly over to visit and play?
KATIE: Exactly. Even making people smile. Every little bit helps.
Uh...Waffles? What are you doing???
WAFFLES: I'm serving my community by looking handsome... you know, for the ladies.

Waffles and Katie, you both do so much for kitties around the globe! We like to do our part too, so we don't get upset when Z-Girl goes out to feed feral kitties in the Powerhouse Arts District (PAD). We hope one day that all domestic animals will have loving homes, and we too have a dream of peace for humans and living beings, just like Dr. King. Waffles, thanks for posing and Katie, thanks for explaining the importance of today! Peace....The Squeedunk CatsReplyDelete

That's probably not exactly what Dr. King had in mind, Waffles, but this was a great MLK Day post. Thank you, dear friends, for reminding us what Dr. King preached and practiced, and why it is still so relevant and important. Hugs.ReplyDelete
