Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Now is a time to pause and think about the amount of suffering, hard change and redemption this country has gone through and is going through still today.
We humans are an ever-evolving species, and Dr. King's example of non-violent change is needed today more than ever.
How we perceive others is a product of our own minds, even though tainted by a society of racism and other social ills. So to keep history from repeating itself, claim your inner self, the part of you that inherently understands equality and interconnectedness between all the parts of the universe we live in.
Remember also that no matter how bleak things may look today, heros like Dr. King are always being reborn in this world, again and again.
