Happy Monday and Happy MLK Day! You know, my favorite MLK quote is “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” It only takes one candle to light another and I truly try to live my life that way. I’m far from perfect, but ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I’m a positive person who is fearless when it comes to my dreams. If I want to achieve something, I will go after it no matter if I fall or fail. It’s not about going after it perfectly, but going after it period. MLK’s dream was about justice and equality and while we’re not 100% there, we’ve made strides that if he was alive today even he’d be impressed with. Having a dream doesn’t mean it’ll come true instantly, but taking action means it’ll be realized inevitably.

Dr. King was just that, a king. Royalty. And I’m so thankful he had the nerve to have a dream. It’s an honor to celebrate him today.
