Ohhhhhh - dis is a goodin. Made me all warm on the inside. “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. #peace #love #mlkingjr
Visited the hotel where Dr. King was assassinated. Was too late to go into the museum today. #history #civilrights #civilrights movement #mlkingjr #martinlutherkingjr #black history #americanhistory #black #life #life changes #landmark #historical #historical landmark #sad #assassination #rip #lorrainehotel
“When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” #MLKingJR #ihaveadreamspeech //// This day is more than fireworks and good food. Let July 4th be a day where we all reflect. Reflect on where we are as a country and what we can do better. A day where we can look around and see EVERYONE in this country as our bothers & sisters. As our equals. People as deserving of Gods grace & blessings as we all are! No our country isn’t perfect. We can not change our difficult history, but we can give hope to our future by realizing NOW that we are all “one human race”. A nation, under God. So today I choose to be “independent” from anything that keeps me from seeing my neighbor as my brother and my equal. I encourage you to do the same.
"We've learned to fly the air like birds, we've learned to swim the seas like fish, and yet we haven't learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters..." - Martin Luther King Jr. 🌿We are one. We soar with the birds. We run with the horses. We play with the dolphins. We suffer together. We laugh together. We love together. We live together. This is our home. Choose to love, choose to care, choose to appreciate ❤. The past cannot be undone but we have today so why not make it count?

"Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being." Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) Gandhhi led India to independence through nonviolent civil disobedience, inspiring movements for civil rights & freedom across the world. His birthday, October 2nd, is commemorated in India as Ghandi Jayanti and worldwide as the International Day of Nonviolence.In times of growth and change we get to decide if the tension we experience feels dark or light, is violent or non-violent, truthful or filled with manipulation. Each person gets to decide which stream they step into, what lens they look though, which line they stand in and which drum they sound. Momentum comes from well-placed energy. When living with a personal conviction or passion and desiring positive outcomes then look for signs of peace, justice, fairness, integrity, equality and tolerance. True leaders and peacemakers are easily identified as they wear a soulful fabric of truth & justice, void of greed and without the need for violence.Peaceful change begins with each individual taking full accountability for themselves. What is true for you? What are the beliefs & passions that ultimately inspire you? What gives you clarity and reinforces your inner strength? How are you identifying with your integrity daily and learning to trust your intuition? Are you surrounding yourself with influences that exude empathy and compassion? Defining your personal truth and then contributing to the world with positive actions creates a very honorable example, inviting like-minded people to do the same.#OnePageDailyInspirations #whatistrueforyou #MahatmaGandhi #MLKingjr #practicenonviolence #beawareofgreed #presenceofjustice #beapeacefulexample
