Why Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is Near the Top of my Hero List

article image placeholderTribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Anything that's considered a difference is now used as something to divide rather than seeing it as an asset. Rather than taking our differences as assets, we use them as tools to divide. So that's one of the reasons of many. That Doctor Martin Luther. Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King we commemorate this day. They say it is not a day off. It is a day on

@AllenMarquis 📣

Hey, it is a day on. Mark, thank you so much for this post. And I'm so moved about the teachings of Martin Luther King when it comes to serving and rising above lower vibrational inclinations and to bypass the stuff that makes us want to turn towards violence, but rather turn towards the ability to communicate and to feel and to serve and to understand what's around us and who's around us and how to weave into their narrative so that we become each other's keepers

So really appreciate you posting and sharing your thoughts, as well as some information and keeping that Reverend in mind, because it's not just an earned position. I think it's a very sacred position that you have to live accordingly and really own up to the fact that you are a Walker and a preacher and a child of God. So thank you so much for posting

Great post

Like you said, light can drive our dark. So are we bringing the light? Are we being the light? Are we being the love? And I will be very honest. It's hard. It's very hard. But you're right. It's like our natural reaction when someone hits us is to want to hit back. And it takes a lot to think and go, no, do not hit back. That's a hard position. And this is a great rate reminder

Love your enemy

Oh, my gosh, Allen, I love that share and just this thread. I was going down a lot of rabbit holes this whole weekend with Dr. King. And actually yesterday I was on a drive and listening to 90.7 in La at KPFK, and they had his speech Love Your Enemy on there where he talks about a lot of things. He talks about the Greek word, the three Greek words for love, and talks about agape
