What a gorgeous day to – turn off – cable news… just for a bit… stop reading the breathless accounts of our impending doom… maybe for an hour.. and think about this day – Martin Luther King Day – and what this man and his supporters were able to accomplish – and the way they were able to accomplish it. Focused passion. Clear headed action. We need to study this man and this time. We have a blueprint to follow if we choose it. If you ever needed to find hope in uncertain times – you will find it here. And by the way – Dr. King’s work is relevant to everybody. Every single person. Every single American can find value here. I am embarrassed to admit that I haven’t spent much time in Dr. King’s company in quite a long time. Today I am listening to speeches and reading some of his most famous quotes. I urge you to do the same. It won’t take long,.. pick one and sit with it for a couple of minutes. My favorite at the moment is:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
But there are many. I would love to hear yours.
Instead of googling Russian Hookers and Golden Showers – google Martin Luther King Quotes… spend some time there.
Just a little.
You’ll feel better.
