On this day in 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1955, Dr. King was the youthful pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. In December of that year, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a city bus. In protest, the African American community began a bus boycott that lasted 385 days. Dr. King’s leadership role in that boycott transformed him into the preeminent advocate for civil rights in America.
King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964; he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968; and, his birth date is now celebrated as a national holiday. King once observed, “The time is always right to do what is right.” As usual, Dr. King got it right.
First, We Make Choices…Then Our Choices Make Us
“Life is the sum of ones choices.”
“Reason often makes mistakes but conscience never does.”
“Every time I’ve done something that doesn’t seem right, it’s ended up not being right.”
“Character is the choices a human being makes under pressure.”
”In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
“Never mind your happiness. Do your duty.”
