Declare Detroit leader Bradford Frost calls us to action — not just on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but every day — in today’s Model D:

Lots of us now call MLK Day “a day on” instead of “a day off.” We volunteer. We dialogue together. We celebrate our progress towards justice, equality and equal opportunity. It’s a day when we put our best civic muscles to work.

But, in a way, I fear we have lost some of the potency behind Dr. King’s example. In the feel good hangover from doing civic deeds this past weekend far too many of us will fade into civic atrophy. (Not you of course, but everyone else!)

My pitch to you is this: make 2013 a year on in Detroit’s public square.
