To Have a Dream..

We wanted to take a moment today to reflect on some of the powerful words spoken by Martin Luther King, Jr. A man who’s policy of nonviolence was a dominate force in the Civil Rights Movement. He was a man of hope and inspiration to many.

This is a great day to talk to your kids about who MLK Jr was and what he stood for, especially the principle of loving humankind.  Here are a few quotes that can lend some inspiration.

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”

“At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love”

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

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

“Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.”
