On this special day, we want to honor and salute Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the legend whose life has been an inspiration to us.
Over the past few days, we’ve spent some time reading through several quotes of his. Here’s one we want to share with you:
“Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: - 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'”
Dr. King reminds us that dreams are important. They give us vision and provide a hope for our future¬—a better future.
Dr. King’s dream of our nation rising up and living out the creed that formed this country is a powerful one. It’s a dream that we believe in deeply, and the dream gives us the energy and encouragement we need to continue in this movement to help the homeless. You know what’s even more amazing? Dr. King’s dream is one shared by so many people across this country and around the world.
So today, we are grateful for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the countless others who have spent their lives on behalf of those who have no voice . . . that includes you.
