Martin Luther King, Jr.

What an inspiration this man was! Of course, his impact was huge, but it does remind us that it all starts with one small step, one small change, one thought outside the box...

I wonder if each of us just reaches out to someone that you normally do not interact with, what would be the result? Maybe in the beginning there is some distrust, or some antagonism, but there nevertheless is some connection. I really do think that we are all linked to the same threads of life, and our humanity is intensified by those interactions. All it takes is for someone like MLK to remind us of that, and then to force us to look at "the man in the mirror" and make a change!

I hope we can not only honor MLK, as we did today, but be inspired to continue his work towards oneness and peace and equality for all. We still have much to do in our own little corners of the world, so hummingbirds, unite!

Take care, Ingrid
