“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends. – Martin Luther King Jr.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
Seeing what has just happened back home in the United States, I’m heart broken and saddened that justice was not served for the death of Trayvon Martin, a child defending himself from a gun toting creep following him. With this, today’s quote seems befitting.
Today is my day of unspoken heroes.
From the likes of Martin Luther King, the Arab Spring revolutionaries and the Occupy Movement protesters to those only known to a few of us. Yes we think and pray for them everyday, but today I ask you to repeat their simple acts of kindness, their inspiration, their generosity, their continued struggle and their love for others! Today is a day of service and I ask that you do so in their honor, in their name.
In many ways these unspoken heroes had a part in who we are today and the least we can do is make today our day of unspoken heroes.
Thank you, Ms. Hala
