A Good One to Quote

Hello Optimists,

When you think of someone good to quote, there's almost no one better than Martin Luther King, Jr. Luckily for us, today is the day that we celebrate his life and achievements, and of course, share one of his many great quotes.

I found a quote today that really exemplifies the message MLK tried to send every day of his life. It is one of the objectives that he wished to achieve, and one of the main messages he wanted to share with everyone he could.
We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war but the postive affirmation of peace. -Martin Luther King, Jr. 

I love this quote not only because it is such a profound statement, but also because it is one that is relevant in any nation of the world. I hope that you will take this quote into consideration today as we celebrate the life and legacy of MLK and remember it always.

Many people are honoring his day by doing community service, so I encourage you to do the same or to come up with you own plan for a way to spread the message of MLK.

In addition to today's featured quote, I wanted to share with you a clip of one of his most famous speeches - I'm sure you've all seen/heard it many times, but it never gets old - so please enjoy the clip below...and try, just try, to keep your goosebumps down.

Keep Smiling,
