Reflecting Upon the Life of Dr. King

“Lightning makes no sound until it strikes.” – Martin Luther King Jr.


I recall vividly when then seven-year-old daughter Audrey Morris came home from school and relayed that, in the week leading up to this Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Day, she and her fellow second-graders would be completing a “kindness” module in Dr. King’s honor. That Dr. King’s life and legacy continue to define our nation is something for which I have profound gratitude.

As I reflect upon the impact of Dr. King’s service and legacy as the then youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner and his iconic “I Have a Dream” address- his wisdom of kindness and compassion and empathy and boldly standing up for what you believe in still rings as true and is as necessary as ever.
Above and beyond all else, I agree with Dr. King wholeheartedly that “if you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
My wish to our country and the world this Martin Luther King Day is that we keep dreaming, we stay empathic, we boldly demand equality for all….and that we keep moving.
