This post is simply to thank the great Martin Luther King Jr. for his vision and the courage to follow that vision. From a communications standpoint, he was an amazing storyteller and leader. While I’ll likely never write anything so powerful, I think we can all learn from his work.
You can view full text of MLK’s amazing I Have a Dream Speech and his acceptance of the Nobel Prize here.
Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man’s sense of values
and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false
and the false with the true.
-Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.
One thought on “A Shared Dream”
Enjoy your blog and the singular perspective you bring to it. Sometimes I feel a little dirty as a marketer and communications professional. Yet like you I have often directed my skills and expertise in the service of worthy causes and communities embodied by nonprofit organizations and the folks who staff them. I look forward to your insights and inspiration.
