Happy MLK Day!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!  Today we get to celebrate a man that was a true leader and inspired all that could hear his message.  A message that I personally think can be applied to not just race, but all discrimination that is occurring right now.  One day I do hope we can truly stand as one and support our neighbor no matter what their nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, or political party may be. 

So today let's just celebrate a man who preached pure goodness and continues to inspire us to be better.
Here is one of my favorite quotes from such a wise soul:

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction...The chain reaction of evil -- hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars -- must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation." Strength To Love, 1963
