On this hopefully relaxing day off, it is important to remember the reasons why we acknowledge this time for a three day weekend. Martin Luther King, Jr was born January 15, 1929 and from there he created a legacy of understanding and equality for all of man kind. The lessons and values that he taught decades ago are still, and always will be, relevant. Today is a day to reflect upon our lives and ask "what are you doing for others?". It does not matter what your situation in life may be, everyone has the power to help an individual. It can be a simple gesture like helping someone pick up the items they just dropped. Every action bears a consequence, so why not make it positive?
Women Like Us is dedicated to empowering the women around us every day. We believe in the power of women, of small gestures, of the strength of like minds and hearts coming together to change the world.
So just like Dr. King so passionately believed in and preached, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?'. For a heart will never become less by giving to others.
Will you join us? You can make a difference today!
