Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”   Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.   The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.   The King Legacy of Service   The King Legacy of Service 25th Anniversary video tells the story of how Dr. King’s birthday evolved into a national day of service.
