MLK, The Man!

Today, January 15, is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Thank you, Dr. King, for being strong and for being an inspiration. We still have a lot of work to do. I will continue to put myself out there, fight for our rights and encourage others to come together and do the same.

"We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope." -MLK

"The trailblazers in human, academic, scientific, and religious freedom have always been nonconformists. In any cause that concerns the progress of mankind, put your faith in the nonconformist." -MLK

"For when people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory." -MLK

"We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real promises of democracy." -MLK
