Today and Every Day

Today is the day we honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Our children are taught about his dream, his work, and his words. All of a vital part of our history. But he represents more than just a piece of history- a time of civil unrest and injustice. What he began, along with others, remains a work in progress. A marathon. A 50+ year marathon.

I typed and backspaced and typed and backspaced many times trying to capture meaningful words to express my feelings on this day. Let’s be honest. The things that our children are taught, the quotes we share, the talking points of this day are important every day. They should be represented in our lifestyle, our words, our actions. And the most fitting words that I can find were said by Martin Luther King, Jr. himself.

  • “The time is always right to do what is right.”
  • “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
  • “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
  • “In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
  • “Love is the most durable power in the world.”
  • “Some things are right and some things are wrong. Eternally so, absolutely so. It’s wrong to hate. It always will be wrong.”
  • “We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope.”

Peace
