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.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Whether or not you have to work today, I hope that you take a moment to not just enjoy your day off (or complain about not having the day off), but to contemplate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He changed our nation and the lives of every person in every generation after him.
May we live selflessly and love unconditionally. May we not judge one another according to what we see with our eyes. May we fight for the underdog and stand up for the rights of those around us. May we live out the love of Christ.
