It’s MLK Day!

19 01 2009

Instead of giving a historical overview about MLK (which I’m sure you got every year in grade school), I decided to share some quotes from him.

A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

A riot is the language of the unheard.

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Whatever your life’s work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.

*And my personal favorite* Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
