Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Despite learning about Martin Luther King Jr. for what seems like my entire life, I first read the words of his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in high school. I had heard it, or parts of it, a hundred times before, but that time was the first time I truly understood it, the first time I was able to contextualize it properly. I was captivated. History has many individuals whose words and deeds changed society, but individuals whose words and deeds changed society for the better—who achieved actual, tangible good in the world—are rare indeed. Martin Luther King Jr. was, is, and will continue to be a hero and inspiration to countless people across the world, and his legacy is a true testament to the enduring strength of goodness and the power of words.
