Hey y’all —
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. day. If you know me, then you know that I find Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to be one of the most influential people to have been alive. I have always said that he would be on the list of people I’d want to have dinner with. His voice and vision gave our nation a sense of hope; his words filled with compassion, justice and courage.
Here are some of my favorite quotes of his:
“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.”
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
When I was in D.C. last year, I got so giddy to stand exactly where he stood during his “I Have a Dream” speech.
In today’s culture (most of which is hateful and politically charged), we need more people to be like Dr. King. Spread love, kindness, and be a voice for the voiceless.
Thanks for reading! Have a great week, friends!
