Today We Honor Martin Luther King Jr. On His 50th Anniversary
Today, the nation celebrates Martin Luther King Junior Day. This year’s celebration is extra special because it is the 50th anniversary since Dr. King’s death and it actually falls on his birthday as well. In remembrance, here are a couple ways you can celebrate in Los Angeles:
Also, the California African American Museum will be hosting their annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. There will be fun for the whole family beginning with kid’s art workshops where everyone can make a dream catcher filled with their dreams for a better world or contribute to the community peace garden exhibition.

Plus, there will also be food so you can spend the day soaking in positive energy, good food, and community.

If you heard the Ellen K: Q&A yesterday, you heard the best way to avoid a cold naturally is to eat lots of SALMON! Salmon, herring, and mackerel are very high in omega-3 fatty acids, which protect lungs from respiratory infections and colds.

3) Cough into your elbow. If it looks like you’re doing the DAB, you’re doing it right! If your kids haven’t showed you yet, a dab looks like this:
4) Build your immune system! Sleep & eat well.
5) Once you’ve kicked the flu to the curb, wash your sheets and change your toothbrush.
6) If you wear eye contacts, change your contacts.
This 4-year-old boy’s mom recorded him singing, “Remember Me” from the Disney-Pixar movie, “Coco” to his baby sister, Ava, who passed away last May. He had no idea he was being recorded. He just picked up the guitar and sang. ️This is the song he was singing by Miguel:
Travis is a friendly, fun-loving guy (just look at that smile)! He is a fabulous running/walking/hiking buddy and enjoys meeting new people. Travis is also very smart and food motivated – he loves to learn and picks up commands quickly. Travis has in-home experience and very nice manners. He’d be a fantastic best friend for an active person or family!
What better way to kick off 2018 than with a new Best Friend. Travis is just $18 to adopt this week and he’s neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Mission Hills is open noon to 8 pm everyday, and all pets can go home immediately. Learn more at bestfriendsLA.org
