Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a great U.S. Civil Rights leader. He was such a powerful uniting personality and bridger of differing opinions. In his 1964 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, he emphasized the truth and unconditional love.
Getting to the unarmed truth can be difficult, but that is why unconditionally keeping love present is so important.
This little girl was part of a large group, but she was the smallest one. Her little legs hurried to keep up with the rest, but she wasn't always successful. This is an everyday situation for many small children. But juxtaposed against the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, it gives pause.
How often do we slow down enough to consider the smallest people? The people with the least resources? With the least amount of opportunities?
How often do we slow down enough to hear the voice saying, "Hey, wait up for me!"
