What Can We Learn From Martin Luther King Jr.?

Let’s take the time to learn from wisdom of MLK Jr. and help guide our children/students to a better society and community. Read through the quotes below and use the list of questions at the end to spark some interesting conversations.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

“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.”

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
