“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.”

In honor of his birthday January 15th and the celebration of MLK day:


The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Via Goodreads: King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Beginning with his boyhood, the book portrays King’s education as a minister, his ascendancy as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott, his pivotal role in the civil rights demonstrations in Washington, D.C.

Rated: 4.6 on amazon.com

This is a great book if you want a deeper level of understanding of Dr. King’s spirit, and his intentions in the Civil Rights Movement.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Of A Life Less Ordinary

The one who cured
Who was the one to endure

Who was the one that cared
The one that shared
Who was the one to be fair

Voices Hearing

Who listens? Merely.
Who has time for a voice? Who will make it?

Who hears? Actually.
Who spends time wisely? Who will waste it?

“Expend yourself with those who believe in your voice, avoid those who stifle it.”

Anxious Wandering

scream
I don’t enjoy the silence and the noises upset my ease. 

I don’t want to be disconnected and your eyes rattle my core.
I don’t desire mundane routine and uncertainties steal my peace.
I don’t like the lonely shadows and the crowds obstruct my air.
I don’t want to feel unnoticed and your looks disrupt my poise.
    I want to feel belonging, but I cannot shed my fear.
