Hey Market Pilot,
Today the markets will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King day. In addition to taking some extra time away from the markets and with friends, family, or hobbies, we should also remember what the holiday is about.
I am sure we sometimes have a holiday and don’t give much thought about what the extra day off is for or why we have set it aside as a special day. Maybe we are just happy to have more time to goof off before going back to work, but we should really be sure to consider what the importance is and why our society has brought national attention to it.
Martin Luther King Day, and the man himself, bring attention to civil rights and inequality. We should each strive to make this world and our country a better place that everyone can enjoy and feel free. Let’s remember the man, what he stood for, and let it serve as a reminder to help those around us less fortunate. Let us be inclusive of others and realize we could be anyone, anywhere, at any moment of time, and treat those the way we would like to be treated.
Think back to where we were, how far we have come, and let’s be appreciative of the diversity around us that maybe we take for granted since it wasn’t always this way.
Your Profit Pilot, TG
