It’s a weird thing to me, to commemorate a person’s death. But that’s what we’ve done today – commemorate the death of Rev. Dr. martin Luther King, Jr., and in doing so, we highlight his life and legacy. And in shining the light on his legacy, I can’t help but see so much of the darkness around us.
I want there to be more light. I want there to be more dreams fulfilled. I want there to be more harmony.
But I’m full of wants.
And I suppose Dr. King was, too.
If I’m like him in that respect, perhaps I am in others.
So while I may never lead a country toward reaching its potential, I can impact a person or two and dispel a little bit of darkness.
And if we each let our little lights shine, the darkness will succumb to the light.
