What Is Your Life's Blueprint?
From the Estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
"Number one in your life's blueprint, should be a deep belief in your own dignity, your worth and your own somebodiness. Don't allow anybody to make you fell that you're nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.
Secondly, in your life's blueprint you must have as the basic principle the determination to achieve excellence in your various fields of endeavor. You're going to be deciding as the days, as the years unfold what you will do in life — what your life's work will be. Set out to do it well.
And I say to you, my young friends, doors are opening to you--doors of opportunities that were not open to your mothers and your fathers — and the great challenge facing you is to be ready to face these doors as they open..." If we are able to instill in our children these words of wisdom while they are young they will be raised whole and not broken as we send them off into society. The world is at an unease, it's important to remember our history, how far we've come and to stand by one another. We are all part of the same race, human race. If we allow one group to have their rights taken away, what will you do when they come for yours? Thank you to our leaders who've made a positive difference in our world, you've lead by example and we've been privileged to witness it or catch glimpses from the past
