Happy MLK Day

“Power without love is reckless and abusive and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.” – Martin Luther King Jr

I have a little book of quotes I’ve collected over the years and I decided to revisit the ones I got from Martin Luther King Jr’s autobiography. Today is a day to reflect upon his life and legacy as we think about our past, present and future fight for justice and freedom in all parts of the world.

I’ve never watched his entire “I have a dream” speech until today. It’s a moving piece that builds in intensity and passion. Martin Luther King Jr was a supreme orator and gave one of the greatest speeches in the history of mankind. Please take 10 minutes to watch. It may change your life.
