Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2023

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the U.S. and I was reading Rev. King’s quotes and picked two that I like which are below and definitely needed at this time in our history.

“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.
March for Integrated Schools, April 18, 1959.

“If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Christmas sermon, Atlanta, Georgia, 1967
