Today we celebrate the birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a student, and practitioner of non-violence. His teachers were Jesus Christ and Mahatma Gandhi.
May all our hearts embrace the teachings of non-violence and peace from this day forward.
As an educator and practicing Catholic, I call upon the strength of my faith to help guide me to follow the path established by Christ, Gandhi, and Dr. King. For it is their joint tutelage my spirit willingly pursues.
“Has anybody here seen my old friend Martin,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.”
