Equality: It's something many of us find ourselves thankful for in one of the world's greatest countries.
Many federal offices will be closed on Monday to take the time to remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s march for equality during the 1950's and 1960's.
So where do you stand on the road to equality?
Most people agree that we've come a long way since Dr. King's long and hard-fought battle for equal rights for African Americans, but some people think we still face many equality issues in today's world, and have a long way to go.
Historians ranked Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as one of America's powerhouses when it comes to talking about equality and civil rights. During the 1950's and 1960's, he fought for the civil rights for African Aamericans who couldn't eat at the same places as white people, go to school, or even use the same bathroom.
Some of you still have memories of what times were like back in those days.
Most of the people 5 News spoke with think you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but some of you just can agree with same sex rights at all.
While the gay rights issue is effecting Americans around the country, many of you still think there needs to be more awareness on the march for equality, and think we need to get everyone involved.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day was declared a federal holiday back in 1983, and while many people said they enjoy the three-day weekend, they said it's also a good day to reflect on what they're thankful for the most.
