Just wanted to take a moment to pay honor to a man who changed The United States of America as we know it.
In a time much like today, with social unrest and challenges, Dr. King didn't just sit back and let the world do its thing. He took a stand-along with many others to make the world different. We are still feeling the affects of that powerful stand today.
I'm not sure that many of us would be where we are today if not for him and people like him. We have been celebrating this national holiday for quite a while now. It says a lot when people push for a holiday to honor you decades after you leave this earth.
My hope is that we will all live our lives on purpose. Not just to serve ourselves or our families only but to serve mankind. The greatest sacrifice is to lay down your life for a friend (or someone other than yourself). In this instance, "laying down" isn't your physical body but rather your time and effort.
Thank you, Dr. King for being such a great example of living life on purpose and with purposeful intent!
