In Honor of Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister born on 15 January 1929. He was American activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using non-violent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. He died on 4 April 1968 at the age of 39. In 2016, Martin Luther King Jr day is on 18 January.  

On today, let us think how we love, how we demonstrate truth and stand for that which is right.  Do you have a voice for any cause or are you just a follower on social media?  There are so many "causes" and "issues" to help bring about positive changes that it is impossible to list them.  Which issue are you experiencing in your home, at work, in the neighborhood that you could volunteer to help bring about chance?  There are too many to list.  

Start within your home, attend PTA, volunteer at the school or community center, visit the nursing home and watch how they're treating the elderly, offer to mentor some youth. Create a love program for families that have lost love ones to crime.  I pray that you will be inspired and renewed on this day- to embrace positive change. 

Quotes of Martin Luther King Jr.-  “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word”. 

Let freedom and peace ring in our hearts and mind forevermore.......are is it only a dream?

Please share this with someone on today.
