Happy Martin Lurther King’s Day
For me, Martin Luther King’s day gives cause for reflection and acknowledgment of countless people who honor his ideals through their tireless efforts of helping others who are vulnerable or at a disadvantage. These past two years have tested everyone’s active involvement in life. We have felt the weight of constant changes from the mundane to the sublime due to the worldwide pandemic. If that wasn’t difficult enough, a mark social and economic shift have further compounded the situation. However, countless people’s resilience and kindness in their valiant efforts also should be recognized. Some have extended themselves to others, making a life-changing difference for those in need. However, recognition of them too often is treated as a footnote during public recognition. Therefore, on this commemoration of Martin Luther King’s birthday, I would be remiss not to acknowledge the essence of the man in the context of who I believed he was; simply a man who read his Bible and tried to emulate the principles of a Godly man. As such, not only do I honor and celebrate him. I also use this platform to acknowledge people I know personally and see firsthand their input in the lives of others. See above.
