martin luther king jr’s legacy, 50 years later

King + Obama

Although we saw little mention in the news of Martin Luther King Jr, whose birthday coincided with Barak Obama’s inaugeration,  his presence was everywhere. In the almost 50 years since his famous walk from Selma to Montgomery fighting for civil rights, a lot has changed — albeit slowly. We see the results daily of his mandate to move forward, one step at a time, however imperfectly.

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
