Happy Birthday Dr. King

“The time is always right to do what is right.”
~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

How true that is. I think it’s something easily forgotten as well. We can always come up with an excuse for why we can’t do the right thing. Today we are celebrating a life that asked us all to dream, to effect change, to fight discrimination and poverty.

I want so much for my children to be good global citizens. I want them to seek answers for the world’s problems, to effect positive change in their communities, to be loving, compassionate people. I will use today to reinforce my belief that they can make this world a better place, that one person can make a difference. I will use today to reinforce my belief that it is always our responsibility to do what is right for ourselves, our community, our planet, and all living things.

What are you doing today?
