Honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy

Today, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., throughout the United States for all that he has done to make our country a more unified and pliable place to reside. Throughout the world he is recognized for the peace maker and freedom fighter he was; it’s unfortunate that at only 39 years old, his life was cut short because of hate; but his message of love and endless work will never be forgotten. Dr. King left an imprint that has changed humanity for the better and will remain in the history books forever. Now, though things are not perfect as he had dreamed them to be yet, they are surely better than they were when he was alive, out fighting peacefully for justice for us all.

I hope that you take today to be in remembrance of this powerful and incredible legend who had a dream, a vision long ahead of his time and though our nation is not where it used to be, and it surely is not where it needs to be, it is a lot better than it was back then because of his ability to dream, speak up for what was wrong and take actions. His actions have opened doors for many of us to live with freedoms that had not existed prior to him bringing main stream attention to the inequalities that existed in this nation which kind of still exist today, just at another level. No matter, how bad we make things are now, there are now more people than ever that are standing up for those who can’t and acknowledging the wrong of those who try to intimidate those who may not have the funds and backings to make things happen. Today, when we see something that is not right, more often than not; people say something instead of doing nothing.

Today, won’t you meditate and consider ways you can stand up and inspire others with your voice. No matter if you are an extrovert or an introvert, you can use your voice to write, sing, rap, play music, paint; make sure to use your gifts to make a difference or leave a mark that can’t be erased from your circle of friends and on a bigger level the entire world. If you see something wrong make sure to do something about it, instead of sitting back in fear or taking the back seat or easy way in a situation. We live in a time in history when it is not time to sit back and watch any longer, we can vote at the ballots, with our dollar’s actions and voice.

Know this, you are more influential than you think, you have the power to change the world as did Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Take a stand today and our world will be a better place for you and all those you encounter and for generations to come. Honor Dr. King today by providing a moment of silence for his life; read or listen to his words and get inspired by his work and understand the legacy his he has left. Let Freedom Ring. AMEN!
