Obama marks MLK holiday

U.S. President Barack Obama visits a Washington D.C- based school to mark the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Holiday. Obama was joined by the first lady and their eldest daughter Malia at the Browne Education Center. Obama spoke about public service. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA SAYING: "If you look at that speech talking about Dr. King as a drum major, what he really said was that all of us can be a drum major for service, all of us can be a drum major for justice. There's nobody who can't serve. Nobody who can't help somebody else. And whether you're seven or six or whether you're 76, you can find opportunities to make an enormous difference in your community. You know, at a time when the country's been going through some difficult economic times, for us to be able to come together as a community, people from all different walks of life, make sure that we're giving back, that's ultimately what makes us the strongest, most extraordinary country on Earth. Because we pull together when times are good but also when times are hard." Later Obama headed to the library where he helped put together bookshelves. He used blue paint to fill in the words "The time is always right to do what is right." Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
