January 13, 2017

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail. If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from a speech before a group of students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia, October 26, 1967
