It's Great To See People Come Together

One of the great things about the 2012 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration's annual Freedom March at Ferris State University is the way that the campus and local community in Big Rapids comes together.

The campus and community come together to celebrate the life and deeds of Dr. King and to do what is possible to help keep the "Dream" alive and continue to work toward Dr. King envisioned during his way-too-brief, but amazingly-important life.

As is always the case, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom March featured so many people from the community as well as faculty, staff, students and alumni. It's great to see that spirit. Hopefully that spirit remains strong or becomes stronger between the 2012 MLK Celebration and the 2012 MLK Celebration.
