A man who led a movement.
A man who stood up for freedom.
A man who couldn’t just sit while injustice reigned.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr helped change the direction of our nation.
He led a movement to end racial discrimination and segregation, and as a result, died for his beliefs, for his cause.
MLK is remembered and esteemed for taking responsibility for the problems surrounding him in 1963.
I’m so thankful for leaders like him who take a stand- even when it cost him his life.
But what about now?
What about the problems here in 2012?
- Did you know there are 27 million slaves in the world today?
- Did you know that 21,000 children die EVERY day from preventable causes?
- Did you know that in India a mom will sell her newborn baby for a 10 lb. bag of rice?
These are unacceptable. These are inexcusable.
What are you going to do about it?
What am I going to do about it?
