Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

One thing Martin Luther King Jr. is not is silent about things that matter. He is fearless. Many of us never know why we're alive and devoid of a purpose. Unlike us, Martin Luther King Jr. knew his purpose in life and was willing to die for the things that he stands for. 
In his speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, he didn't leave out the phrase, "I have a dream" despite what his advisers told him not to. He was right to ignore their advice and  "lo and behold" this phrase became so famous that you want to explore and respect for what it really holds...the power of a vision, a dream, your wisdom!
One of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. is when he said that "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."  
You can almost tell what he meant by this quote...He wants us to be aware, knowledgeable, and educate ourselves with what is going on in the world, in our country, in our communities and most especially at home. 
What do we do to carry his torch of equality and freedom amongst us? 
We have to take a leap of faith even when we don't see the whole picture. 
Do something. Don't let you dream be stolen by others' precepts. Join in groups supporting causes that you believe and help other people's needs.
Write about it, say it and demonstrate it with good intentions.
Don't compromise what you believe is true.
Develop good instincts.
Pray for courage, strength, wisdom, and His grace.
I know I don't have 500 words tonight Because I'm going to sign off early. 
Feeling tired and sleepy. I want to write more but I'm having a writer's block.
Good night.
God Bless
