MLK Day 2013

About 100 foster children visited Loyola Marymount University on Saturday, Jan. 19, to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The children, along with dozens of volunteers, heard from professionals who gave them insights into possible careers and were given a beatboxing by Joshua Silverstien.

"Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle or Einstein's Theory of Relativity or the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. And a soul generated by love"

Martin Luther King Jr.


Among the festivities at the event was an award ceremony. For the hard work and dedication to community, Eric and Amy Garcetti where honored with our annual Peace in Service Award.

Also honored at the event with our Peace in Creativity Award was hip-hop artist Nick Carter better known by his stage name Murs.

See below for an excerpt from our talk with him.

On behalf of the entire team at Fostering Change Network, Peace4Kids, its youth, staff, and board we would like to give a big thank you to all that were there to support this wonderful event and celebrate the legacy of Dr. King.
