that famous “i have a dream” quote has been heard around the world by millions.  but how many of us have truly thought deeply about the meaning. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was speaking of course about racial tolerance.  but his words meant more…

it was a call for us to consider a person’s actions, the way they treat others, their words and ultimately their heart.   it’s not enough to look at the superficial aspects of others like how much money they have, their titles, the clothes they wear or how many social media followers they have.  look further and discover what people are about.  get to know and truly see them.   pay attention to their actions and then you can make a judgement of who they really are.  

on this mlk day when the country is so divided, i hope we can take a moment to heed his words.  we need to refocus our priorities when deciding who to look up to and who to dismiss.   

let’s place our highest value on character; the true mark of a person.
