In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we're asking people around town this question: What three words represent what King's life and work have taught you?

Several community members attending the Elkhart Black Expo Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration this morning shared their responses with us, which are shown below.

If you'd like to tell us what three words represent what King taught you, we'd love to hear from you! Your response (either in the form of a video or text) can be emailed to us at ataylor@elkharttruth.com, posted on our Facebook wall, tweeted at us or written in the comments beneath this story. We'll be adding your responses to this page.

Many students at the school, who were born with Autism and development disorders, wear shocking devices to control violent outbreaks. The Food and Drug Administration is considering whether to ban the devices used at the center, the only place in the country known to use electrical shocks as aversive conditioning for aggressive students.
