Martin Luther King, Jr. – A Fitting Tribute

2014-09-08 15.27.03Today is a day we honor a man who, at a necessary time in our history, answered the call to challenge our very core societal beliefs.  A man who coaxed the good within everyone to the surface.  Who challenged us all to embrace freedom, love, and opportunity for all people.

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

I had the opportunity recently to revisit Dr. King’s Letter From A Birmingham Jail.  In today’s America it is  nearly impossible to relate to the issues King was addressing in this writing.  But because of his commitment and sacrifice he affected change.  We can all continue to take lessons from this man and thank him for the gifts he gave to this great country.
