Martin Luther King, Jr. believed life’s most persistent and urgent question was:
‘What are you doing for others?’
Today marks the 25th anniversary of the federally established day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy.
On the National Day of Service everyone is encouraged to volunteer to improve our communities. Something, in my opinion, we should consider more than one day a year.
If you can only manage one day, then make it this one.
And, whatever you choose to do today, think about this excerpt from one of my favorite King quotes:
“… anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.
You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
