Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Today

It’s been more than 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told us about a dream he once had, yet the various events throughout 2014 proved that everybody still isn’t ready to make his dream a reality. We’ve made major strides to make our country a safe place for all shades, shapes, and sizes, but we’re still not there yet.

Given that today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, spend your day thinking about what you can do to help make the society we live in a better one, if not for our generation, then for future generations. Even if you may not see it with your own eyes, racism and inequality is very real in America, as we’ve unfortunately been witness to on numerous heartbreaking situations over the past 12 months (and beyond).

What can you do to make tomorrow better? What can we all do collectively to help achieve Dr. King’s dreams?
