On this day, as we celebrate MLK Jr., grateful I had the honor to meet and talk to Dr. Alveda King this year. She is the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and is an inspiration in fighting for life and civil rights.
Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
—Martin Luther King, Jr.
