On this day before Martin Luther King's birthday, my thoughts turn to him and all he stood for.
He was a man who put the sorrows and struggles of others before his own.
Despite a great deal of suffering, he never lost hope for a better society and world.
In harboring a dream, he gave hope to others.
He died tragically but not in vain.
While a lot of progress between races has taken place since then, so much more needs to be done.
We cannot stand by and do nothing because we are all part of the same human family.
HOW DO YOU THINK ONE INDIVIDUAL CAN HELP TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE?
