january 16th
today we honor the life of dr. martin luther king jr. -
a brave man whose life was cut short.

his story is one that we often only know minimally, 
although it is one that we naturally absorb because his legacy surrounds us.
we often are missing many pieces of his life and of his work beyond the i have a dream speech.

today i went to a gathering that honored his life while also speaking about some of the enduring issues that king addressed.
it was moving
people of different ages, ethnicities and socio-economic levels gathered in one room; 
it was beautiful.
yet simultaneously so many reminders that our society still needs to work towards equality and justice for all god's children.
