Today we remember a man whose words inspired rather than belittled. A man whose vision looked forward in hope rather than backwards in fear. A man who fought against horrific inequities yet saw the bright promise of our democracy. A man who never tweeted, posted, or blogged, but whose words continue to give hope to others around the world. A man who was violently taken from us but whose life’s work promoted peace. Dr. King continues to call us today. He calls us to be our better selves. I cannot think of a more important time to heed his call. ~c.h.
