MLK DAY PEACE UP, LINK UP
Sunday, January 16th & Monday, January 17th
What do you believe?
1. Write a post (or record a vlog, compose a song, write a poem…it’s up to you!)
about what you believe inspired by the following quote
taken from Dr. King’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech:
I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere
can have three meals a day for their bodies,
education and culture for their minds,
and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.
I believe that what self-centred men have torn down,
other–centered men can build up.
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I believe that we can raise each other up with collaboration.
I believe that self-centeredness is divisive and promotes fear and ignorance.
I believe we can look for similarities in each other rather than differences.
I believe that whether you are black, white, christian, muslim, straight, gay, tall or short,
we are all human and we need to look inside ourselves and others to find those divine sparks that we all share.
We can be a light in the darkness.
We can lift each other up toward the future.
We have come a very long way.
We still have a long way to go.
I believe we can achieve Liberty and Justice For ALL.
I believe we must in order for our nation to survive and thrive.
We are the UNITED States.
Let’s prove it.
