Day 16: Participated in Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Activities

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity." -Martin Luther King Jr.

Every day on this journey I am trying to do as much as I can for others. Through charity, donations or service, I am going to try my best to help as many people out as I can. Today the message of my mission is more apropos and poignant than other days. That is because today honors a man who lived his life for the betterment of others. Martin Luther King Jr. lived his life more concerned for the rights and well-being of others than he did for himself. So today, my random act of kindness is an attempt to exemplify the man who we honor today. Later in the afternoon I will donate my time helping children learn about Martin Luther King Jr. If you have the day off of work, maybe try to find one of the service activities happening in your city and take part in them.

  1. Hi Ryan,

    Saw this in "blogs of note" and will be referring back to this next MLK day. Any day is a good day to do this, but MLK Day has been a sticking point for me, every since my son's Temple youth group went to play lazer tag on MLK Monday (!). It's time we all got out and did a little service. Thank you for your inspiring blog.
