Today we celebrate the birthday of a hero in history who dreamed of a world where people were judged by the content of their character. This included a non-violent, peaceful place where people of every race and creed could live in harmony.
Do you have the courage to step up and take a stand to help realize MLK's dream even when nobody's looking and even if it might be risky to do so? I came across this thought-provoking clip recently and thought it perfect to celebrate MLK and reignite his plea for peace.
*Note: There is one "bleeped-out" word so it isn't appropriate for all audiences. Its impact might be greatest on those of us who are age-appropriate and have the opportunity to positively influence tomorrow's future by fostering the skills they need in order to be upstanders and step in to help the victims of bullying behaviors.
It might all boil down to the Golden Rule: Treat others the way that you want to be treated. I know which of the people in this clip I'd want want nearby if something like this were to happen to me.
