Today, we at US Family Health Plan honor and celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King embraced a vision of equal rights and justice for all. His leadership in the U.S. civil rights movement, changed our nation forever. He helped bring down towering walls of hatred. He conquered intolerance and inspired the creation of new laws recognizing human rights and equality. He helped construct strong, lasting bridges among diverse and divergent peoples. He ushered in an unprecedented age of unity and harmony, that until then, was unimaginable to most.
