The United States celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday (January 16) honoring the civil rights leader’s life, legacy and achievements. King, a baptist minister, was the most prominent civil rights leader during the 1960s and advocated nonviolent methods to end racial segregation. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1964.
King is often quoted this time of the year. In my story, Faith to take the first step, last November, I wrote about how one of his lesser known quotes has pushed me through some tough moments in my life. The quote: “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
I think only appropriate to include a few additional thoughts from King. I hope you enjoy.
