A great leader is courageous yet filled with compassion, strong yet willing to yield, driven by wisdom and committed to the greater good. A person of the people, willing to sacrifice for others.
Thank you God, for the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Each year I post as a way of remembering Dr. King. Now more than ever, may we seek leaders with values like his. May we remember, and continue the work.

“Darkness can’t drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate can’t drive out hate; only love can do that.”
“We have before us the glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of love into the veins of our civilization.”
Dr. Martin Luther King
May God give us the courage, and the humility
to stand up to hatred in our world today
and to be the love
we so desperately need.

Thank you Dr. King for your bravery, your service and sacrifice,
for your wonderful, inspiring words, for believing
in humanity, that we can change
that we need to change,
may we never
what you taught us.
