In Celebration of the Life of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
As we celebrate the remarkable life and achievements of one of the greatest leaders in our history, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it’s important to not only remember his words and actions within the context of his life but how those very words and actions still hold relevance today. Over the past year, we have witnessed a transition of power the likes of which this country probably never could’ve imagined and a seismic shift in the tone of the country, so it may be even more important to take to heart Dr. King’s legacy. While many of us enjoy a day off, let’s not forget the causes that Dr. King held so dear that he was willing to give his life for to leave a blueprint for generations to come. Though he accomplished much in his life and continues to do so even in death, there’s still so much to do to fulfill his vision.
