Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A day to celebrate a man who used words to protest and changed the world. His speeches are timeless. His message is fearless.
“No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.”
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
“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.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
It’s been 51 years since MLK was assassinated and there are still many issues that need to be discussed. How can we speak up today in his honour? How can we bring lightness to the darkness? How can we keep moving forward? How can we serve others? How can we make a difference?
