FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
01/19/2004
Governor Schwarzenegger Proclaims January, 19, 2004 "Martin Luther King, Jr. Day"
Proclamation
As we remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we reflect on the significance of his extraordinary life.  Today, we are committed to the same struggle against injustice, inequality and suppression of freedom that Dr. King waged four decades ago.
Dr. King said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," and that "the true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige and even his life for the welfare of others."  It is important that this message of service is honored not only today, but throughout the year.
We recall the experience endured by Dr. King and by other men and women who have borne the burden of destructive social barriers.  By dedicating this day to giving back to our communities and reaching out to those in need, we honor and celebrate Dr. King's life and legacy.
California is home to peoples of diverse heritage who have built a tolerant society, and we continue the pursuit of Dr. King's vision of absolute peace and equality.  We will not compromise our convictions and we will redouble our commitment to the pursuit of justice and equal opportunity for all Californians.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, Governor of the State of California, do hereby proclaim Monday, January 19, 2004, as "Martin Luther King, Jr. Day."
IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have here unto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of California to be affixed this 15th day of January 2004.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA
