Gov. John R. Kasich encourages all Ohioans to join him in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for devoting his life to service and equality for all people. On Thursday Kasich issued a proclamation recognizing Dr. King's contributions to America.
"Dr. King has enriched our heritage and our commitment to non-violence, peace, dignity and justice for all," Kasich's proclamation states. "It is fitting that Ohioans reflect upon the life and accomplishments of Dr. King and recognize that his vision continues to provide a powerful symbol of a life based on the values of love, compassion and justice."
