Thank you, Dr. King.

"The time is always right to do what is right."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

This is the statue that greets students and visitors as they enter the UC Davis School of Law, which is in a building named after Martin Luther King, Jr. It was a great honor to see Dr. King each day and be reminded what the law can do. Of course, we still have a ways to go for universal justice, but a lot has changed since 1968.

Have a good day, and take a moment to think about how justice has touched your life.
