Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement in recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which falls this coming Monday, January 21:

"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived a life marked by courage, conviction, and a dedication to justice. He changed our nation for the better and was instrumental in extending the opportunity to pursue the American Dream to all people. Dr. King was also committed to the principle of non-violence, and serves as an important reminder that we must always strive to express our differences while still respecting one another. As we celebrate the second inauguration of our nation's first African American President, we remember the extraordinary life and work of Dr. King and the many civil rights heroes that came before us, and we reaffirm our commitment to continuing the fight for justice and equality."
