Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

mlk quote

After seeing 12 Years a Slave, my life has been altered forever. MLK definitely is at the top of my list of people I wish I could have met in this lifetime and that I can’t wait to hang out with in the next.

To stand up for those that society deems inferior and to uphold values like freedom, justice and equality is not an easy task… In fact, it cost MLK his very life. But he was wise in choosing love as his weapon of warfare and now the world is so much better for it. MLK has taught me that love isn’t just about lifting the heads of the oppressed, poor, hurting, marginalized, broken and disenfranchised, most of the time it’s as simple as speaking up on behalf of the person who’s right beside you.
