I won’t get political here during these turbulant times. Recently I shared my goal to show more compassion to others in 2021. Martin Luther King Jr. believed the only way to change society was to show compassion to others.
When I chose compassion as my word for the year, I didn’t have him in mind. After a year of tragedies, I saw people hurting and decided we could all benefit from receiving compassion from others.
“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.” Martin Luther King Jr.
We’re still social distancing and wearing masks where I live, but my goal for today is to find one person to show kindness and compassion to today.
What about you? How will you celebrate Martin Luther King Day?
