CAMP HUMPHREYS, Republic of Korea -- USAG Humphreys Equal Opportunity hosted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. observance ceremony and commemorative march at the Four Chaplains Memorial Chapel, here, Jan. 22.
Members of Camp Humphreys filled the chapel to remember and celebrate the memory and mission of Dr. King.
Eighth Army Chief Religious Affairs Sgt. Maj. James Morris, served as the guest speaker at the event.
"This is a very important time that we should not only take this time to talk about his life, but also his legacy," said Morris.
He called upon the community to honor King's legacy by volunteering.
"Volunteering, seeking opportunities to serve others, and searching for their needs, to fulfill those needs, were the crux of Dr. King's aspirations and dreams," he said.
After the observance in the chapel, the attendees gathered outside for a commemorative march. The group was eager to honor King's legacy through action and collaboration. They held signs and posters with inspirational messages and photos of the legend.
"True change comes to fruition through groups that have conspired to work together to bring about a common goal," Morris said. "The sum total of a group is far greater than the outcome of one single person.
"The civil rights movement was not a one man show, but a people that acted together for a common purpose and cause," he said.
