This week I want to dedicate the blog to shine a spotlight on those still living and continuing forward Dr. Martin Luther King’s life’s work by living a life of service.
Do you know someone or are you someone who has dedicated his or her life to make the world better?
- A social worker
- A lobbyist fighting for social justice, equal rights or environmental protection
- A priest
- A teacher
- A doctor or nurse
- A soldier
- A public servant
- A coach
- A researcher or author
- A non-profit founder or leader
- An investor putting funding into products and services that move us toward “the dream”
Not everyone will get out today, this week, this month, even this year and offer their talent, time, and energy to help a cause move forward. I’m not shaming anyone. Sometimes we have to focus on obligations, if even for the sake of all who depended on us. It’s just life.
I know you want to honor Dr. King’s legacy, so here is an option that can take all but two minutes and will keep the flame of service alive by honoring the efforts of those who inspire you with their service.
Please leave a comment to tag and recognize this person or people for all, or even just a little, of what they do. Tell us what they do to inspire you and how they make you feel. Then make a promise to do an act of kindness within a particular time frame in that person’s honor. Once your act of kindness has been done, post a picture, tell us about it, and tag the person you honored again.
