Happy Martin Luther King Day!

Martin Luther King (b1929), in 1964 became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.  The prize was awarded to him for his efforts and advancements to end racial segregation and discrimination, by way of civil disobedience and other nonviolent means.  That’s pretty good headway for a 35 year old.  We are all only left to wonder what he could have accomplished had he made it to his 40’s and beyond.

I’m thinking it’s pretty safe to say that one of the characteristics that led him to his power was one of respectfulness.  By treating everyone with the same respect we wish to be treated, we can strive to be respectful and civil towards others in all of our actions.  Sometimes we may fall short, but remembering one of his famous quotes, “The time is always right to do what is right,” may help us on our journey.
