Martin Luther King Day

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.

Martin Luther King Jr Day 2021 will be celebrated differently.

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?
