Today we honor courage, respect, brilliance and resolve.  Great qualities common in most great humans and too often unrecognized.  

To the quiet soul who stands up to the bully but you never hear about it.  To the soldier who fights for stranger’s rights.  To the woman who leaves a threating situation.  To the neighbor who secretly helps a friend.  To the man who is determined to not fail.  To the volunteers spread all through our society.  To all others who give without expectations.  Martin Luther King stood not only for the rights of the black community but for the rights of all men and women to the life that everyone deserves.

We salute you Mr. King and all those who quietly follow in your footsteps and all those brave enough to not falter in the face of fear.
