Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

U.S. Sens. Joe Donnelly and Todd Young say they’re working to continue Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy as they try to spread his message of love and unity.

Attendance at the annual event to celebrate Dr. King’s life was perhaps a bit dampened by adverse weather outside. But speakers inside the Statehouse said that didn’t diminish the importance of their message. Sen. Young (R-Ind.) borrowed what he calls one of his favorite King phrases, saying we should all be “custodians of hope.”
