Black and white photo of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a quote to the left of his face.

"The time is always right to do what is right." —Martin Luther King Jr.

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 18, 2021 celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy.

I love so many of Dr. King’s teachings that it was very difficult to choose just one for today. His legacy and his teachings still leave an impact on this world today and every day of the year. With the recent events at our nation’s capitol, this quote by Dr. King resonates loud in my spirit. It is never too late to do the right thing. When wrong things are done, wrong things are said, wrong actions are taken, I would like to believe all has not been lost. We can still choose differently, choose better, choose to think another way — the right way.
