Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Martin Luther King Jr.
I had a difficult time choosing a MLK quote on this day that we celebrate his birth. His words of love not hate, action, justice, and his saying, “What are you doing for others?” are all significant, memorable, and meaningful. Great teachers show up in our world but it seems we learn so little. The hate, injustice, selfishness persists.
We may not have the stature nor the faith-fired strength of Dr. King but we can make a difference. We have a voice. Consider what this one man started. One voice, one person’s action can stir the winds towards positive change.
Affirmation: I can make a difference.
Coaching questions: What cause or injustice matters to you enough that you will speak up and speak out about it? What’s holding you back? Your voice is significant.
