And is it a real holiday where you get a day off?
    Yea, it really is simply a day of remembrance. Nobody every really says Happy MLK Day; it might even have a gloomy pall about it. It definitely does not hold the same demeanor as Independence Day. However I know, there are always unique thoughts and memories in every individual mind. I know there has to be people out there that think a little differently about today. That is why I asked, I just want to know what people think/do about today when they are normally taciturn about their thoughts/feelings in this regard.

    It does have a bit of a pall over it, doesn't it?

    As a mom of two adult children who didn't always do what I thought was best for themselves my first thought of Martin this morning was how disappointed he'd be in his brood since he couldn't stick around to guide them.

    Well I didn't exactly mean in that way. The pall I previously mentioned was more consonant with retrospection of King's assassination rather than dissapointment in a cohort. If anything, I think it would be the contrary. We do have Barack Obama as president after all (and numerous other contributions I will not elaborate). King was the catalyst and provider of momentum to a movement (hehe, I like how momentum and movement went together so well) that can now be carried on by the rest of the American people, in my opinion of course.

    Yeah. You coined a decent phrase there.

    Example of INFP - making it relevant to my life. Making a connection.

    Edit: The greater pall for me goes without speaking.

    Ahhh, I still have much to learn about MBTI. Thanks for the heads up though. Would you say that most NFP's place relatively high value on personal connections like this in general?
