People worth emulating: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
Obviously, this man needs no connection to Pennsylvania to be honored on this website -- but you know me -- I found one -- MLKjr graduated from Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, PA. I love it when I able to link good people to this great state. (Truly, in Pennsylvania, you don't have to look too far.)
"Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's ‘Theory of Relativity’ to serve. You don't have to know the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in Physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love, and you can be that servant."
~Martin Luther King Jr. - excerpt from "The Drum Major Instinct"
One way to motivate yourself onto greatness is to emulate those who are worth emulating. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of those people whose words and actions always seemed to match up. He became a servant to make the world better (and arguably, to correct the world's faulty beliefs). He stood up to oppression and moved a country to action.
Thank you Dr. King for your life and testimony.
