53 Prospect Park West
Our colloquy auspiciously falls the day before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. An excerpt from “The Meaning of the King Holiday”, written by his wife Coretta Scott King, reads as follows: We commemorate Dr. King’s inspiring words, because his voice and vision filled a great void in our nation, and answered our collective longing to become a country that truly lived by its noblest principles. Yet, Dr. King knew that it wasn’t enough just to talk the talk, that he had to walk the walk for his words to be credible. And so we commemorate on this holiday the man of action, who put his life on the line for freedom and justice every day, the man who braved threats and jail and beatings and who ultimately paid the highest price to make democracy a reality for all Americans.
It is obvious that Dr. King was well versed in the power of intent and he exemplified the meaning thereof. Consider the power of your own intentions. How are your intentions showing up in your daily life? Certainly, you do not have to be a famous world leader in order to evoke positive change in your life and others lives.
