The whole life of Martin Luther King Jr. is a perfect reflection of tolerance and patience. However, this is not to be mistaken with weakness or indifference. MLK’s lifelong struggle for equality is all about standing up for what’s right, even if you’re alone to begin with.
The precarious path which MLK chose for himself teaches us that the means one chooses are equally important as the ultimate goal itself. The other key takeaways from Martin Luther King Junior’s life are hope and forgiveness.
When things are not moving in life the way we want them to, hope is something that fuels our journey forward. AS MLK once said, “Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”
Martin Luther King’s life is about standing up for all sorts of discrimination. On this day, we should resolve that not only will we stay away from all the forms of discrimination, but will also become the voice of others that face it.
Every year, Martin Luther King’s Day reminds us of the deep rooted nature of this problem, and how a collective effort is so important to fight this menace. The actual values to uphold in life are equality, fairness and justice, and MLK was a reflection of these high virtues.
As we recover from a devastating pandemic, we will need the efforts of every member of the society. This will only be possible if everyone feels a sense of inclusivity, and equal opportunities for everyone to shine.
