ECU Takes On Martin Luther King Jr. Challenge

Over a hundred ECU students took on the Martin Luther King Jr. Challenge Monday morning.

That challenge was to make a difference and volunteer their time.

Many students volunteered at the give to the troops in Greenville. There they helped to pack boxes that will be given to troops before they deploy overseas.

Organizers there say that it's especially important this week, because many troops are headed to Haiti to help with relief efforts.

And since they're leaving quickly these care packages help to make sure they have everything they need.

Students participated in other projects such as painting at the Boys and Girls Club, working with animals at the Humane Society, and assisting at the retirement community Spring Arbor.

    A great holiday to remember a great man. I believe if Dr. King was alive today. He would be disappointed in the way we treat each other. Especially in the black community, black on black is rampede. Some of your youth have lost their way. Yes., we have a bi-racial president so what but really has anything change. We must change ourselves aes a people first, before we can the situation that we are in. We need to take responsibilty for our on action and stop blaming the other man. Truly education is the key and as the old saying goes knowledge is power. An that power is free. We are standing on the shoulder of a lot people who made sacrifices on your behalf.I am vet myself which is a wonderful thing to volunteer your time and effort for a good cause.

    Who should have a Nations day off. My vote goes for. Remember - Jonas Salk (October 28, 1914 – June 23, 1995) was an American medical researcher and virologist, best known for his discovery and development of the first safe and effective polio vaccine. He still saves Millions of lives still today. With his vaccine. Because most young people never heard now of polio. Which killed Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt. Look it up in your history books. Salk is a American Hero
