Thoughts of King Inspire

Click Here for books about
 Martin Luther King, Jr

For Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
dreaming was not optional.
The great lesson of King’s life:
Impossible dreams can come true.

His call for social justice.
His opposition to the Vietnam war.
His insistence on faith and family.
His words and deeds, a legacy.

King did not live
to reach the mountain top,
but his leadership
changed the nation.

Today, we stand together
awed by King’s moral vision,
humbled by his challenge:
Be better.  We must.  We will.

Martin Luther King Day honors Dr. King for his contributions to our country.  However, the holiday serves another equally important function—each year it reminds us to work towards fully achieving his goals in our personal lives and in our country.
