- Thank the person who nominated you
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – MLK, Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr. continues to be an inspiration today, and words really can’t describe the respect he deserves. He is too often portrayed as just standing off to the sidelines and preaching love and his dreams, rather than the clear-headed activist he really was. He was bold, brave, wise, kind, incredibly astute, and drew the best kind of inspiration from his religion. His fate was a great American tragedy.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day will be Monday, January 18th in 2016, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t respect and honour him the rest of the year. While doing that, don’t forget to remember a civil rights activist that we too often skip over: Claudette Colvin.
And here’s the bonus quote:
“The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.” JFK, John F. Kennedy.
There’s a lot you can say about JFK and his brother, RFK. I don’t want to drag this on too long, so I’ll just say that they were trying to achieve good goals and their ends were tragic. This quote in particular is a good bit of wisdom to remember: we shouldn’t make changes only when the severity of the situation is crushing us. In times of peace, when changes can be made easily, is when we should be pushing for change.
My Last 3 Nominees:
Hope you’re all having a good week!
