Today, we remember the life of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. We reflect on his life. We look back at a life that was sacrificed, to make a difference. And tomorrow, we will watch as the first African American president is sworn into office. We look forward, to the future. The confluence of these events is especially poignant. It gives me great hope.
Dr. King once said, “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
It is a decision we must make not just today, but every day. I think there is no nuetral ground. To do nothing is actually choosing the latter option of self-focused living.
I want to walk in the light of creative altruism. How about you? What do you think that looks like? Do you know anyone who lives that way?
Let’s talk about it!
