Today we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King. Martin Luther King devoted much of his life to implementing justice and equality for all. He also invoked a spirit of courage, when he stood up for what he believed in, without giving control of his thoughts to the consequences. On this day, we celebrate his life as well as what he brought forth to our entire nation.
One must not measure a man only by his character, but his inner state of love. Love is an overwhelming influence that fluctuates from time to time in the knowing that all is good, all is love. So what does love really mean?
Often times, we focus more on what we need and desire, and take little time focusing on basic and material things or even our accomplishments. Millions of people throughout the world don’t have essentials (food, shelter, water) needed to survive. On this note, we should always be in a state of gratitude.
