Creatively persisting for justice, in faith

The Artdog Quote(s) of the Week

We live in an era when persons of conscience and integrity (and I hope that includes you and me) must stand up for what we value, for public and private virtue, for compassion, and for the rule of law.

It takes strength, but more than that it takes faith

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the staircase. --Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We must have faith that even when the odds look long in favor of chaos and corruption, we can make a difference. We can build toward the light. We can call, and call, and call for justice, even in the face of injustice.

It’s an important thing, this standing up, this speaking out, this taking of a moral position. How we act toward others in a time of fear and suspicion is the true measure of our character.

Today, as we remember and honor the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., let us also remember and honor and live by the guidance he gave.

Many thanks to all!

Important to remember

The Artdog Quote of the Week

This is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and on a week in mid-January when we can use some motivational dreams to guide us into a better future, I could not imagine any quote I love more to combine these thoughts about dreams for the future.

IMAGE: Many thanks to LoveOfLifeQuotes, via Addicted2Success’s “88 Iconic Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes,” for this quote image. And many thanks to Dr. King for an enduring aspiration! Side note from the artist in me: After my Kwanzaa quote-searches and now this one, I really want to know how it is that so many quotes by African Americans are rendered in black-and-white. What is up with that? Don’t the folks who create quote images think persons of color are colorful??
