The fact that one man can help change so much just by standing up and speaking out tells you how much can be accomplished when we devote ourselves heart and soul to something we believe in.

Peer into the face of a man who chose to stand for his principles rather than to give in to compromise and fear, and tell me we couldn’t all use a little more grace, courage and integrity in our lives. In the way we do business. In the way we discuss politics. In the way we treat one another.

What would you do with your life if it weren’t so centered on yourself? What would you stand for? And what would you be willing to give up in order to have your vision of a better world realized?

Remembering Martin Luther King today, this week, this month, and hopefully all year.
