“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too big a burden to bear” -Martin Luther King Jr
Every year, when Martin Luther King Jr day rolls around, I love talking to my kids about how he fought for justice through peace and love. I want my children to know that they can always fight for what is right through peaceful means. In this day and age, there is so much to continue to fight for. While we have come a long way in society since MLK’s day, we still have miles, and miles to go. MLK’s words and actions continue to inspire current and future generations to peacefully educate, and the get the word out, about what is right. I am thankful my children can look to him as a role model for social justice.
There is always at least one quote from him which speaks to me every year. This year, you can see that quote above. What is your favorite MLK quote?
