Today, all across the country, people are celebrating the memory and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A man who was a father, clergy man, leader, husband, professor, philosopher and love ambassador. Dr. King, who was only in his mid 20's when he forged his way into the Civil Rights movement, wasn't just a man who decided to lead some marches.
He was a humble servant to his higher purpose. When others said, I'm tired, he along with his visionaries moved forward and fought in the name of love. Love for all. Equality for all. Accessibility for all. Opportunities for all. Acceptance for all. It takes a whole lot of character to be still in the face of adversity, harmful words, personal attacks, and physical violence.
Everyday in our lives we may be faced with micro situations in which our own characters and ability to love no matter what are challenged. I can for surely say, its challenging. Learning to love yourself and others unconditionally is truly a practice that begins from the inside out, but Dr. King 's ability to do so, are not in vain. Even though this world is messed up in more ways than when he was alive, the truth and principal of LOVE is everlasting and continues to thrive.
To Dr. King, those before, those after, and those today who choose to walk in LOVE as best as possible, you are acknowledged!
