non-violenceSome things are not meant to be forgotten.  Fifty-three years ago on this day, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. penned his “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”  The letter is one of those things that must remain an important part of human thought.

Five years ago, we first posted a piece that speaks to the heart of Dr. King’s message.  “The time is always ripe to do right.”

Whether or not you have read Dr. King’s letter, I invite you to read it again, or maybe for the first time right here.  This is a message we should hold close to our hearts and one that can change our lives and those whose lives we touch as we strive to make our world a better place to be.

  1. There are a lot of thoughts that come to mind about the letter. One that comes out above others is the importance of aligning with a leader who observes an injustice and has a plan to stop it. It seems it’s important to not only align myself with that person but also help them accomplish what they have set out to do. Not just words of support but actions even if it promotes non-violent tension.
