10 Things You Can Learn FromMartin Luther King, Jr.
On the nationally observed Martin Luther King, Jr. Day,take a second to learn a little bit about the man and hismission, and the bits of wisdom you can take from aquick look at an amazing life.
10. Sometimes things don’t always go as planned
Malcolm X was not thrilled about the 1963 March onWashington for Jobs and Freedom. He actually called itthe Farce on Washington. Organizers wound upagreeing with a presidential request and the tone of theevent was less forceful than organizers originallyintended. Critics needed not worry, as the event was thebiggest protest to come to Washington to date, andprotesters were front and center for King’s “I Have aDreamspeech. Delivered right on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial and burned into the world’s memoryever since.
9. Passion is paramount
I submit to you that if a man hasnt discoveresomething that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.” 
MartinLuther King, Jr.King believed in justice, equality, philanthropy, nonviolent protest. He was a preacher, a scholar, and arevolutionary. He was a husband, a father, a friend, and aleader. He was a brilliant orator, a Nobel Peace Prizewinner, and his life was cruelly snuffed out way before histime. It was his passion that set him apart, and hispassion that continues to do so.
8. We’re all in this together (eg “It’s not all aboutyou”)
“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I cannever be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.” 
Martin Luther King, Jr.
7. Again, it’s not all about you
“An individual has not started living until he can riseabove the narrow confines of his individualistic concernsto the broader concerns of all humanity.” 
– Martin LutherKing, Jr.
