I didn’t expect to get so emotional. My eyes filled with tears, as I visited the monument of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I felt a brief tinge of self-consciousness, until I looked around and saw that I was not alone in my overwhelm. I shared a communal cry with several strangers, in honor of a life well lived.
THAT is a legacy. Over forty years after his death, Dr. King’s life, and accomplishments, are still able to inspire an outpouring of emotion, from people all over the world.
Dr. King understood that we all have a divine responsibility to leave this planet better than it was before we got here.
With that in mind, how will you make the world a better place? What will you be remembered for? What will your legacy be?
Will you raise kind and compassionate children, who will create a ripple effect for generations?
Will you create art that inspires the masses?
Will you help people in need?
Will you be the best friend that the world has ever known?
Will you be a voice for the voiceless?
Will you teach what you have learned?
Start TODAY. Embrace this divine responsibility.
Dr. King embraced that responsibility. There is a 30 foot-tall statue in our nation’s capital, in honor of that fact.
If you choose to honor your responsibility, you may not be memorialized with a 30 foot-tall statue, but people WILL build statues for you…in their hearts.
