Martin Luther King Jr Day
It’s been 30 years since Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday was recognized as an official holiday across the United States and it’s a prescient opportunity to take pause and reflect. Reading through some of his works, I’m struck by their enduring power and abiding relevance.
Here’s a quote of his that resonates with me that I’ll be reflecting on today:
“The time is always right to do what is right.”
What are some quotes or passages by MLK that motivate or inspire you?
Did you do what was right?
MLK day is coming up soon and it has got me thinking about those who do what is right.
A few weeks ago as I was getting off the train my keys fell out of my pocket and due to the lack of sleep, I didn’t even notice (#momlife).
I would have traveled for an hour and a half without them, rushed over to the car and then realized they were gone. My baby would have been waiting at daycare and I probably would have cried.
...but instead, someone on the train did what was kind and right.
They yelled out to me, and as I turned they smiled and said: “You might need these!” I told him he had quite literally saved the day. He could have just as easily looked away and let the doors to the train slam shut behind me but he chose to do what was right.
One small act of kindness made the largest difference.
Excuses are dragging you down......
I think about the great MLK Jr. today. A go-getter, a do-er, a kind and passionate person. When things get hard, you must remember this. We can't make excuses, we just have to keep going! So keep moving, keep striving for the top, and keep going. We are too strong to give up now.
Don't lose YOUR dream!
Thanks to Mr. King, these 4th graders understand how important dreams really are! It's NOT too late to chase ours right? -------> We have got this!! http://www.wlwt.com/article/fourth-graders-tell-how-martin-luther-king-jr-touches-their-lives/15163840
