This is a day to remember many things.
Where we started.
Where we’ve been.
How far we have to go.
And of course, this man, Martin Luther King Junior, his words, his work, his inspiration.
Especially after these recent years, and all the divides, I think I’m most hopeful that King’s words only gain more credence, more salience, with time.
I’m also hopeful because my children know King’s stories, they know his leadership, his vision. So very VERY grateful for that.
“He was a hero, a leader, a speaker, a man of great courage, and a very wise man, a counselor, a believer, a pacifist, a preacher. And all people were the same to him.”
Yes, there is reason to hope. There is much MUCH work to do, be we should do it being hopeful. We CAN make it better. Let it be so.
