January 20th was the celebration of an everlasting leader. This year marked the 25th anniversary of the day of service put in place to honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and legacy.
As an activist, Dr. King fought for a world where every individual would be treated equally and respectfully regardless of their race or nationality. As an advocate for peace and justice, Dr. King delivered over 2,500 speeches in his lifetime all of which demonstrated the necessity for access to public services for all. Remembered as one of the most important human beings of all time, Dr. King’s teachings and ideas still inspire people to rise above even their own greatness for the better of humanity. Dr. King’s words were always a call to action and a reminder that anyone can make a difference no matter the color of your skin or placement in society.
