Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

January 20, 2015

Prior to his tragic assassination, Martin Luther King, Jr. was viewed by many as a heretic, a false prophet, a deterrent who did little to boost the civil rights movement’s forward motion. His core message and ultimate hope, "...that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word," have since silenced Reverend King’s critics and now stand as testimony to his wisdom and foresight.

On this day we celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and remind ourselves that the written and spoken word have the power to harm and to heal, to weaken and empower, to discourage and inspire.  We recall below some of his most heartrending and persuasive declarations, and post them here with sincere gratitude:

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Many of us have worked with a bad boss in our lifetime. Remember the micro-manager, the yeller,  the softy, the one who’s never there, and/or the boss who takes all the credit for your work? We've all experienced trials and tribulations working under these leadership styles. "It’s frustrating," we say to ourselves, "but that's life." What if, though, we could somehow magically transform supervisors of this sort into competent, inspiring leaders?
