Celebrate the spirit of Dr. King with flowers

Many people have January 16 off from work or school each year for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This January date, the late reverend's birthday, is designed to be put aside to remember his honorable work in making the United States a place where everyone could live in peace.

United We Serve, President Barack Obama's national call for community service, has transformed this day off into a day "on," to answer MLK's call. He once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

As a result, millions of Americans are answering that question by participating in the MLK Day of Service, a call for all Americans, from all walks of life, to come together to work on solutions to any number of problems.

You should encourage and inspire those around you to get involved in a project in honor of Dr. King. Patriotic freedom flowers like Teleflora's America the Beautiful bouquet may be a perfect way to inspire others to live in the spirit of one of the greatest Americans of all time.
