Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King, one of (if not the most) prominent member of the Civil Rights Movement.
Dr. King passionately believed in equal rights for all Americans, for all people and it’s because of his selfless actions that we live no longer live in a Jim Crow era.
Now, although racism and prejudices still exist in today’s world… The work left to do doesn’t take away from the work already done by Dr. King and those like him. Their sacrifices have made the society we live in today just a little bit easier and for that we should be not content, but grateful.
It’s now our turn to take the torch and run with it.
Check out some of the tweets paying tribute to him today:
MLK said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” To me that means sometimes you’ll feel fear. You’ll feel lonely. You’ll feel uneasy. But if you lean on faith you can move past that fear and climb those steps to a new and better life. pic.twitter.com/cNZOmdJKqu— LLCOOLJ. (@llcoolj) January 20, 2020
