Not if, but when. As you know from my post last week, that’s a rule my father repeated often in our household when I was a kid—and a basic guideline I’ve underscored with my own children. It’s also part of the message behind what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached: When, not if, we will live in a world where everyone is valued, regardless of their race, orientation, or religion.
Today, as we observe his birthday, we should all take a moment to think about the incredible contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His life’s work has not only given me something to aspire to, it’s helped me to work toward creating a better world for my children and those around me. Take a look at the video I made with The History Channel marking Dr. King’s incredible legacy. [video link]
