"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.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr., U.S. civil rights champion (1929-1968)
Anyone can lead or be successful when things are easy, but how do you handle adversity? Today marks a special day for the history of our nation and diversity. I value a lot of the principles Dr. King preached and hope that peiole can continue to follow them today. Peace, respect, honesty, acceptabce, and kindness can all be spread across ages, genders, social classes, and the world. So today lets not just enjoy the day off from school or work, but also remember the message.
