I hope today is one of inspiration and growth for you.

This weekend, I had the privilege of seeing Rev. Dr. William J. Barber speak. I loved his perspective on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and the action steps he outlined to move our communities forward. And, I found a quote from him in a recent interview that I think embodied the spirit of one of his messages this weekend:

“What we don’t need is another celebration of the life of Dr. King, or a commemoration. What we need is to re-energize the principles of the movement and deal with the issues of racism and classism that are still very much with us. Too many people talk in platitudes about Dr. King and not about his prophetic vision.” – Rev. Dr. William J Barber II

What do you think were the principles of the movement that Dr. King fought for?
