Martin Luther King

Today's Wonder of the World is...Martin Luther King

Happy MLK Day, friends!

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
Harriet Tubman


May we be brave in our dreams as well!

Have a wonder-full Monday, y'all!
Love, Becky

Thanks for stopping by! I just got home from volunteering - A Day On, Not a Day Off, in honor of Dr. King. We had a terrific time at an inner-city middle school and I think some of our volunteers have committed to return to the school regularly as mentors. We also made paper cranes for the kids at the school, leaving behind a prayer for peace in the world. It was a great day.

Not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. This is a huge weekend.

I can't help but look at his videos and get chills up my spine.

Tomorrow will be a good day for America and the world.

All the comments on your blog today are warming my heart! Today we celebrate a man who radically changed the world for good.

Thanks for the important reminder.

I got chills listening to his speech on the radio...on the way to work this morning. I forgot how powerful it was and how real and true the words were...and still are.

Thanks for this, Becky. An understatement to say this is inspirational.
I am almmoooost finished with your book. It gets better as I get closer to the end and I'm sure I'll be sad when I've finished it. Had to reset priorities here lately and yours and Dave's book are screaming at me! Then JOe brings me one by a Navy Seal. I need books on tape!!!

Between Martin's birthday, and Lincoln's birthday, and Obama's inauguration....it is almost too much goodness to take in.
