Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness. Only Light Can Do That ~ Martin Luther King Jr

According to my calendar, today is the observed birthday of Martin Luther King Jr, so I have used a couple of his quotes. He died the year after I was born, but his legacy will carry on long after I am dead, cooked and sprinkled. One of my favourite quotes by him is:

If you can’t fly, then run
If you can’t run, then walk
If you can’t walk, then crawl
But whatever you do,
Keep moving forward.

Martin Luther King Jr

I hope that you can keep moving forward this week.

  1. Great start to a Monday morning……no school today because it is MLK day! πŸ™‚
    I think it was Nixon who changed the “holiday” schedule so they are observed on Mondays no matter what day of the week the “birthdays” fall on. It has something to do with the banking industry I believe. Plus it is easier when you can have a long weekend!
    Have an awesome week my friend!~

    • I was thinking today that it is MiLK JaR day πŸ˜‰ Close, it was Reagan in 1983. I suppose he did do some bits right then πŸ˜†

  2. I love all of these quotes. Beautiful way to start my day. I didn’t get to spend much time this morning. I was at work at 7:15 a.m. today so I am just now getting online to catch up. I hope you are having a great day today! Hugs to you A.

  3. Wonderful post, I was about 8 when he died & I cried my eyes out. I had been watching him speak on TV a lot & I just loved him. I think it was one of my first wake up calls in life. I couldn’t have ever imagined that anyone could possibly have wanted to kill such a wonderful man & I viewed life somewhat differently afterwards. Thanks for sharing the quotes, I didn’t know it was his birthday today πŸ™‚

    • His birthday was last week, but it is observed today. I think possibly because it is the first Monday afterwards. I will look into that.

      Okay, the third Monday in the month is a federal holiday in observance of his birthday.

      It’s usually the case that someone so dedicated to peace is take by a form of violence. Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, John Lennon. It is such a shame that he was assassinated. Had he carried on, he may very well have been able to change the views of many more people
