I like going to the Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco. If you go there, you’ll see a beautiful water fall built in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The memorial includes back-lit photos from the civil rights movement and twelve shimmering glass panels set in granite and inscribed with Dr. King’s inspiring words. The words of Dr. King are translated into the languages of San Francisco’s 13 international sister cities, as well as African and Arabic dialects.
My favorite quotation that I read and engraved in my mind is the following:
“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.”
This humble minister from Georgia and the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize has radically changed our country. He’s inspired the lives of many, can rise above the narrow confines of their individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
