    Today’s Hot Topic: MLK Day Through the Eyes of a Teen

    Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, girls!

    As we all know, MLK is an important part of our country’s history. As a civil rights activist, he fought to bring equal rights to all races and made many famous speeches, most notably, the “I have a dream…” speech. He is remembered as a good, eloquent man who helped to shape the future of America, and a minister who spoke often of his relationship with God.

    As a teen, what’s the takeaway from an influential man like this? Well, a super sweet girl, Julia Sumouske from Colorado, recently shared a blog post on the YSA (Youth Service America) site explaining her thoughts on MLK Day. We really like what she had to say:

    Nearly 50 years ago, a man brought an uprising for change, for unity, for action. He had a dream for this world. A dream that this world would live with the utmost justice, empowerment, and freedom that it so solemnly deserved. Sadly, he was taken from this earth on April 4th, 1968. But to this day it doesn’t take away the mark he has left on communities, our country, and quite possibly the world.

    January 21st is more than a day of remembrance and it’s more than a day off. It’s a day to honor this incredible man through service and opportunities that we have today. To show MLK that our generation, MY generation, will live in a world he so clearly wanted the world to be. The MLK Day of Service empowers and strengthens individuals; creates solutions to social problems; and moves us closer to a vision of a loving community.

    I personally believe that every single human being, no matter your background, age, or abilities, can make a significant change in this world.

    I believe in today and I most certainly believe in tomorrow.

    So make your mark. Go out and live the legacy MLK has left for us. Empower yourself to make a change by either finding a project on this day (January 21) to support or volunteer with; or even, create your own service project. Choose a problem in your community and call attention to it. Petition; advocate; but most importantly, show your service to the world. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words live on through all of us who are willing to make the changes he thought the world needed.

    So, what do you think of this call to action? Are you inspired to get involved or interested to learn more? MLKDay.gov is a great starting point. Hit the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
