Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy is one of honor, courage and love. During the middle of the 20th century, a time of great divide and violence, his love for humanity broke through the evils of segregation. African Americans were unable to live like everyday citizens. They’d face discrimination and hate at nearly every corner they turned. They were bullied, beaten, and bruised. They couldn’t drink from the same water fountains, eat at the same restaurants, or even sit on the same seats of the bus.
The things that we take for granted today were once privileges of only the fair skinned. That didn’t stop Dr. King. He knew that he was destined to leave a mark, a dent in the universe that would forever change the course of humanity.
And that’s what he set out to do.
What can we learn from Dr. King in 2019? Well, for starters, we can realize that love always conquers hate. Dr. King taught us that we can dream. He told us that it’s okay to be different, to have goals, and to work relentlessly at them regardless of what others may think or say. We learned that people must do the best they can to love their neighborhood, regardless of skin color or background.
We learned that we have to be Kind, be Love and do Good. Join us in celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and remind ourselves to not be satisfied–
“No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream..
