Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today allows us to recognize the dream of Martin Luther King Jr., one of the great leaders the world has ever seen.

The positive energy he encourages, his ability to motivate and to get others to buy into being a part of something bigger than themselves are what made him one of the world's great leaders.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the leader that is remembered on this special day -

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of this creed - We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal."
