Martin Luther, Dr. King’s namesake, lived in the 16th Century, a time of immense conflict. He said this:
“Peace if at all possible, truth at all costs.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. knew that telling the truth is the basis for any real dialogue.
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
He also knew that truth is most powerful when it’s allied with love and service.
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'”
Take care of yourself, so you can take care of others.
