As the Martin Luther King Holiday approaches, I found myself remembering last year.

On the 2008 Dr. King Holiday I was watching the Democratic primary debate in South Carolina. I remember how Wolf Blitzer asked the candidates, "If Dr. Martin Luther King were alive today, why should he endorse you?" Senator Obama responded, "Well, I don't think Dr. King would endorse any of us. I think what he would call upon the American people to do is to hold us accountable."

It is with this new spirit of accountability that I intend to celebrate this MLK Holiday and every here after.

How will you celebrate MLK Day?
