ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Had he lived, Thursday would have been Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's 80th birthday. The vision of the civil rights leader was celebrated at a service at MCLB Albany.
An overflow crowd at the base chapel heard from Commander Aaron Jefferson, chaplain at the Navy Submarine Base in King's Bay.
He urged the crowd to continue Dr. King's work. Johnson says that one person can make a difference, and that once one person acts, it can inspire other people to act as well.
"I'm thinking about a young man now who wanted to help women in Ethiopia. And he's this teenager who lives here...I wish I could recall his name...but he said 'what can I do?' And now he's begun to make a difference and helping them by building a little stove they can use to cook their meals on so they can eat," said Commander Jefferson.
In addition to the keynote speaker, the audience got to hear other speeches and tapped their feet to some inspirational songs from the MCLB Choir. The national theme for this year's Martin Luther King Day celebration is "Remember! Celebrate! Act! A Day on, not a day off".
