How did our elected leaders note Martin Luther King Jr. Day on social media? Mostly by posting pictures of themselves and talking about what great examples they themselves set.
It was a joy to once again participate in Denver’s annual #Marade, where we came together to honor Dr. King’s enduring legacy. His spirit is alive and well in our community, and we must continue working to fully realize his ideals across America and around the world. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/i4qCb5exiR

We have so much work to do—to raise incomes, send our kids to great schools, and keep our communities safe. But I know we can set an example for the rest of the country & the world as we do the work to keep Dr. King’s dream alive. #Marade #MLKDay https://t.co/IC7DGixggq

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

It’s not lost on us that Democrats used the occasion to promote themselves, instead of simply honoring the great leader like Republicans did.
Today, we honor the teachings, life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We reflect not just on what he said or did, but the change he set in motion. He faced fierce opposition, but he never gave up and his words and example inspire us now. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/BLAexh55N9
