O4W | Inside Martin Luther King Jr.'s birth home

ATLANTA -- This two-minute video provides a rare look inside Dr. King's birth home at 501 Auburn Avenue NE, and a few facts that many might not know about his un-famous childhood there.

Dr. King's birth home is open to tourists but not usually to cameras.

The National Park Service welcomed ours on King Day, January 16, 2012.

Those who visit the home learn about some of King's childhood experiences that helped transform him into a world-changing leader.

ADOPT A PET: Meet Davin

ADOPT A PET: Meet Davin

 

 ATLANTA, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers by adopting a "companion" for yourself or for your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.
