House Honors Dr. Martin Luther King

In Olympia, the state House paused in its business Monday to honor civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Junior. Washington House Republicans’ John Sattgast reports.

SATTGAST: Newly elected Rep. Kelly Chambers was among the speakers on House Resolution 4602, which honored the life and work of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior. In her maiden floor speech, Chambers offered a personal reflection.

CHAMBERS: “When have made so much progress, we have to ask ourselves why we still have so much left to do. I don’t pretend to know the answer to that, but I do know that people aren’t born hating one another.  Somewhere along the line, people veer off course, and many never get back on it. That’s why it’s so important that moms and dads take the time to teach their children that the content of people’s character is what matters above all else.””
