Thursday marks the 45th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. An Illinois man has taken it upon himself to help spread the message of unity in a unique way.
Marc Daniels has been traveling the country spreading seeds in hopes of growing a big idea. He says the seeds are symbolic with the message to weed out hate. The message is aimed at kids and anti-bullying.
"Weed out hate is a grass roots movement that empowers every child in the world, and I'm estimating two billion children, to continue and complete that great dream that Martin Luther King put in front of us."
Daniels is challenging schools, churches and others in the Omaha area to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org and help him spread his message. The seeds are free of charge.
