MLK: A King that pointed the way to the promised land…

I wish you all a very happy Martin Luther King Jr Day!

mlk1This blog is about inspiration and I can’t think of a person more inspirational than Dr. King.  The ‘I have a dream’ speech is truly iconic (watch below). It moves me to tears everytime I hear it. Dr. King was said to have ‘vision beyond his circumstance’ –  he showed us what was possible. On  the eve of the inauguration of Barack Obama, this speech and King’s dream resounds more deeply then ever. The dream is beginning to be realised.

So let’s never forget the past and how far we have come. But let’s always look to the future and the progress still to be made. There are so many injustices in our world today – and they need someone to fight for them. I wonder what dreams this generation will realise… It’s exciting!
