In Olympia, the state House paused in its business Monday to honor civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. John Sattgast reports.

Sattgast: Newly-elected 4th District State Representative Bob McCaslin was among speakers on House Resolution 4603, which honored the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In his maiden floor speech, McCaslin said Dr. King lived a life that should be an inspirational model for all people, not matter what race or background.

McCaslin: “Dr. King was a man of hope and faith, and he never gave up on either. He demonstrated this by loving those who persecuted him. Whenever he saw racial inequality or injustice, he saw an opportunity to love. Dr. Martin Luther King's fight for equality for all people is one that endures to today. And perhaps this is the measurement we in this room need to use. Don't you think?”

Sattgast: Spokane Valley Republican Bob McCaslin.  The resolution passed unanimously.

John Sattgast, Olympia.
