Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2015: Quote 50.

mlk day, martin luther king jr

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’“ Interesting thing, my dad happens to be a huge admirer of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.–as most are–and in the spirit of the times, he asked that God would bring him a child with the same spirit to help and love others. Apparently, that child was me! Now, I don’t know about me inspiring national movements or anything, but I do love and appreciate what.. Read More

 Brace yourself kids, ish is about to get real! As I’m sure most of you have noticed, I chopped off all of my natural hair. Any other time, this wouldn’t be a big deal, as I’m always cutting my hair after I get bored with it, but this was a bit different.
