Did They Say That? Martin Luther King, Jr.

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day today, I’m doing a “Did They Say That” post with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King himself.

“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

The third Monday of every January is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and is celebrated around his birthday of January 15. It is only one of three federal holidays to commemorate an individual person (the others being George Washington and Christopher Columbus).

Martin Luther King, Jr. was an amazing person and a history-maker who stood for his beliefs in spite of what society, law, or people said at the time. He fought for racial equality, and his legacy lives on today. But we are not done yet. Racial inequality stills exists today even in this country. Not only that, even slavery still exists in parts of the world. Our work on this earth is definitely not done.
