Martin Luther King, Jr. day was celebrated in the United States yesterday. It’s a holiday dedicated to the memory of the civil rights activist and preacher, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I look at Dr. King as a role model in my personal and professional life. The adversities that he had to go through in the 40s and 50s and 60s is nothing like what I have seen or have had to go through, but he persevered through it all!
A few things that I have taken as a learning experience from Dr. King’s life:
1. Follow your Dreams!
2. Be positive & uplift and inspire others
3. Racism is not just about color, it is an attitude.
A regular man was able to do so much, it gives me inspiration that in 2014, a regular person who does not have to face as many roadblocks can do so much! Dr. King had the courage and conviction to guide people in the US to follow a dream and make that dream a reality!
I found a few quotes of his to pay tribute to Dr. King and his ideals!
