Observing Martin Luther King Jr. Day


One of the things that I try to focus on when everything happening around me seems overwhelming is  to do something for someone else. It takes you outside of yourself and makes you think about the wellness of those around you.

This quotation above is one of my favorites from Dr. King. Maybe you can't change what is happening on a global scale, but you can so something however small for someone else. Bring food or clean blankets to an animal shelter. Visit someone in a nursing home who doesn't get visitors. Call someone who you know is feeling down. Pick up trash while walking in a park. What would happen if we each did something to instill joy or comfort in someone else? I believe this world would be a much more peaceful place, just like Dr. King imagined.
