“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

My dream is to create a world of love and tolerance, where people make responsible choices from a place of personal power.  No one embodied, lived and died for that dream greater than the hero we honor today, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the man with a powerful dream.

Nothing I can say will do justice to his indelible spirit and passionate purpose.  Today on Facebook and Twitter I found myself sharing countless quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. what profound wisdom and statements he spoke, the eloquence of which I can only aspire.

As you go through your busy day stop and remember what a different world this would be if it were not for men such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  And ask yourself what are you doing for others?

“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.

There is still so much work to be done.  I am humbled and challenged by the upward call and ask all of you to join me in seeing Dr. King’s dream fully realized in our generation.  Be the difference.  Do something, just move.

My tribute would not be complete without including the famous speech that still stirs the hearts, ignites the passions and motivates the masses to this day, “I Have a Dream Speech” this video may be lengthy but worth the view.

Namaste,
