I'm honestly at a loss for words that might capture any amount of the admiration and tribute that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. so undoubtedly deserves. Instead of allowing my words to fail at this task, instead I'll keep the post brief and leave you all with the words of the man himself, that have inspired so many to keep dreaming and working to ensure we reach that mountaintop.
Thank you Dr. King for your tenacious work, and your brave example. May we all find your grace, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness in these turbulent times. Here's to the troublemakers, the peacemakers, and the crusaders of love. Happy MLK Day 2017 my friends.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
