Have any of you ever loved dreaming about what you can do to change the world? Martin Luther King Jr dream was much more than a dream, it was a spark. A single spark grew stronger and bigger when it touched other people. There are sparks like his that never go out. Remember my post about igniting your spark?
It all starts with a spark. You have one, everyone does. Maybe you have lit it, maybe you haven’t. WHO KNOWS? Martin Luther King Jr’s spark was human rights, non-violence and equality for all. He had a dream that all races could come together to go to school, to go to the same bathroom, restaurants and to go into the same neighborhoods. He believed in freedom for every person in the world. He believed that people cannot judge you on other people’s looks but how they act.
In 1994, the US Congress decided that January 20th, Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, would be officially called Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. This day honors his memory, his work, his passion and his spark and is not just for people who live in the United States. If you believe in the power of community and giving back, if you believe that we all need to be good citizens, if you believe that you can make a difference for someone – DO IT!
I’ll be there to cheer you on!
