Today, as we honor the service and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., people across the world gather together in an effort to build stronger communities and create change for the better. On January 16, 2012, I had the privilege of co-hosting our City Year Miami 4th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day Opening Ceremony. This ceremony took place at Northwestern Senior High School in Miami, FL. We were honored to have hundreds of volunteers come out and show support in ways that helped to showcase the strength of service through action, commitment, and community.
As I look back and reflect on the last 5 years of my journey, I have come to realize that we all have our own unique gifts and abilities. With great endeavor, our gifts and abilities empower us to contribute to society at large in ways we may have never deemed possible. When we make time to discover our unique gifts and abilities, we can then go out into the world in an effort to create change and make better happen.
Regardless of the capacity of impact we may feel we are currently making at this moment, our mere existence is an opportunity for the world to feel both our presence and our presents. As long as we are living, as long as we are giving – we will always have an opportunity to be winning!
