Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Posted by:

Much will be written today about the incredible contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King.

“During the less than 13 years of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s leadership of the modern American Civil Rights Movement, from December, 1955 until April 4, 1968, African Americans achieved more genuine progress toward racial equality than the previous 350 years had produced. Dr. King is widely regarded as America’s pre-eminent advocate of nonviolence and one of the greatest nonviolent leaders in world history.” http://www.thekingcenter.org/about-dr-king

As we pause to reflect, let’s allow ourselves to be deeply stirred and then equally motivated to dust off good intentions and get to work on this business of change.

Without hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the primitive forces of social stagnation. So we must help time and realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”
“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”
