Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Although he died before I was born, I have always stood in awe of his passion, dedication and ability to take action and make a difference.
I also find it nearly impossible to see one of his speeches and not feel moved, inspired, energized and driven to speak clearly about what I feel passionate about as well.
While his legacy is the civil rights movement I have no doubt, were he alive today, he would embrace this movement to also preserving our precious Earth.
Use today to reflect on some of his words. They are truly relative to every aspect of human life and the world around us.
“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
You, too, need not wait a single moment before you begin to speak out and make a change that makes a difference.
