I always love seeing how people choose to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on this day of remembrance. Call it clicktivism or slacktivism or any other negative term people have come up with for this generation of online natives, but I believe if you take a moment to appreciate these posts you will be genuinely touched by people doing their small part to remember a great man.
Kid President is one of my favorite commentators because of the simplicity of his communication and its ability to speak to everyone — young and old. Take this quote from the above video about MLK Jr…
“He dreamed and he changed things.
And he dreamed and he kept sharing his dreams.
They became not just his dreams [but] a lot of people’s dreams.”
My hope is that all of us could boil down our complex ideologies to simple concepts that allow us to live our lives in pursuit of our dreams and their relation to the well-being of others.
Happy MLK Jr. Day!
