HONORING MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

And three articles you should read now 

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. But what does that mean? To some, it’s a day off. To others, it’s more: remembering a man with a dream.
It’s never easy to go against the grain. It’s even harder to challenge the thinking of society. Luckily, Martin Luther King Jr. had the heart, bravery, and fortitude to peacefully forge ahead. His leadership in the Civil Rights Movement in both his words and deeds stand as a testament to his memory, made just as important in our current times.
We ask today that you please read the below thought-provoking articles on Dr. King and the legacy he left behind. Think about what you can do in your own life to live his dream.
