As we get ready to celebrate Dr. King and all he stood for, I think about the many things Dr. King taught us. How does one man make such an impact? Part of that answer is that he did not do it alone. He was the leader of a community. There are many individuals and civil rights icons that walked and taught along side Dr. King.
Dr. King left us a playbook. We have his words – his teachings. Isn’t this a perfect time to keep learning and growing with the principles that Dr. King stood for?
Today I will re-dedicate myself to learning and reaching for the Beloved Community. I start here:
SIX PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE
Be courageous (principle 1) as you step out into the world. Walk alongside others that uphold these principles – be part of creating a Beloved Community. Reach with me.
Thank you Dr. King and all of those that work for freedom and justice to make this country and this world more compassionate.
