MLK Remembered

When I was kid I attended a speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  During the evening event, crammed into a small suburban school auditorium, with standing room only, I had no idea who I was listening to. My parents brought me, we were in the balcony, and what I remember is being hot and tired. There were no other children, and I couldn’t even see the speaker.

Yet, there was a palpable energy in the room that I felt. I sensed that something important was happening. My antennae picked up a greatness about the event and the speaker. The vibe in the air was as charged as an electrical storm; it was potent and exciting. Only decades later did I learn the impact of the man and his importance on earth.

Creativity and wellness message for today: “The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
