MLK

  • Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love
  • If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
  • The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
  • Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
  • An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.

Today America stops and celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I’m heading out to attend the  MLK Brunch at Ohio University to honor what MLK and other many great people did for this country in regards to civil justice. We could take today as “just another day” off work, or we could wake up, make a change and make a difference.

LISTEN: {In search of brighter days, I ride through the maze of the madness,Struggle is my address, where pain and crack lives…I have a dream, that one day we’re gonna work it out…I Have A Dream by Common}

Have a great day!

  1. Great post! It ties in to your most recent post about the importance of “how you live”—–MLK demonstrated courage, leadership, humility, and grace while championing a just cause. in fact, he died for it. What an amazing legacy!
