A Day of Remembrance: MLK Jr.

Today is the day that we remember the legendary Martin Luther King Jr. A man of honor, integrity and wisdom, who despite all odds, stood up for what he believed in and gave hope to the hopeless. Although, it may feel like not much has changed, Donald Trump is president, discrimination still exists and racism is overt, we must acknowledge how far we’ve come. I am thankful for the era that God has sent me to live because I can see the growth of our nation. From separate schools and bathrooms to interracial relationships, Dr. MLK dream has come too pass and is still happening. We are living through a moment in history and must embrace all opportunities. We are all one body under Christ and share the same Spirit, let us live as people of honor, integrity and wisdom as the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.”

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

-Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.
