“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
Today is a day when we remember a man whose legacy was unity and equality for all people, regardless of race.
Dr. King fought against injustices through non-violent protest. He was a Christian man who believed that the Lord had created all of us equally and as such we are to see each other and treat each other as equals. He didn’t know that when he took that first step into the realm of public, civil disobedience that it would lead the nation into a new era of civil rights. He had faith and a dream that a nation could change even though he may not have seen the full path ahead.
One man influenced a generation to change our country, and he did it by taking one step at a time. He moved towards what he knew in his heart to be right and others of all races followed, because they knew these truths too. That all men (and women) are created equal in the eyes of their Creator!
