Measure of A Man

Today, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was a clergyman, an activist and the most predominant voice of the civil rights movement in the 1960’s. His non-violent protests and his eloquent speeches for social justice won the support of millions of Americans. Dr. King’s memory is especially poignant as we anticipate the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States of America.

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Interestingly, this quote reflects the ideals embodied in one who is the founder of an organization that advocates the inclusion and support of children with all abilities and needs (The Bubel/Aiken Foundation) and a UNICEF ambassador.

  1. What an amazing time for our country!

    We all strive to make a difference, some are just able to reach out and touch the masses.

  2. I’m not American but this time in our lives is still of enormous importance all around the world.

    Clay Aiken and his charity, the Bubel Aiken Foundation, strive for inclusion . I hope his endeavours strike a chord around the world for change and for everyone to have the same chances in life.

  3. It hope that one day no one will be judged by their color or religion. That everyone will have equal opportunities in a world where war and oppression are distant memories. One can dream. Without dreams, what would we strive for?

  4. “I have a Dream”…what a statement of hope and inspiration.

    My hope one day is that no one will be judged by their colour, religion, orientation….It’s important that we all make a difference, no matter how large or small…we’re all here together in this world….The best we can be ,is decent human beings… no more bullying. Just treating people with respect. I can dream, I have hope…
