Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is more than a time for parades and store closings. Today is the day we all honor the man who devoted his tragically short life to making the world a better place. Google can't create a Doodle for every person or holiday, but they make it a point not to skip MLK Day. Today's Doodle features white doves in the "O," Dr. King's face in the second "D", and the scene of his "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial over the "L."

Take a look at some of the past Dr. King-inspired Doodles below then watch the inspiring speech again for for the first time.
