A Few Favorites from Dr. King

"The time is always right to do what is right."


"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."


"If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective."

 

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."  



"I have decided to stick with love...Hate is too great a burden to bear." 



~Martin Luther King Jr. 


Sending you love on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, friends. 

~Jess

His words ring true always, and they bring a tear to my eye. But what we ALL need is to see that what moves us to tears must move us to action. We can do what is right individually, but this is a HUGE world, and I hope that one day his dream will stop just being a dream and actually be a reality.
