January 19, 2015 - 9:22pm Two events that happened in the greater-Cambridge area today aptly celebrated the legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A service of Commemoration and Remembrance, sponsored by the Cambridge Peace Commission, was held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Central Square. The service, attended by people from across Cambridge, demonstrated King's inclusive message, a call for peace, unity, love and hope, in addition to his condemnation of militarism, materialism and racism. Later in the day, thousands joined the 5th annual Many Helping Hands day of service in various sites around Central Square - an afternoon of hands on service projects for the benefit of many of Cambridge neediest residents. And in Boston, a local contingent of the national the 4 Mile March sought to "bring awareness to America's epidemic of racial profiling and police brutality, and to honor all those who have been injured or died as a result of police violence." The peaceful march included this die-in, at which were read the names of those killed by law enforcement officials. Messages of unity, acts of service, and peaceful protest exemplify the legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. read more
