What are you doing for others?

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” —Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” —Martin Luther King, Jr.

As a white-bearded pasty-pale very white old guy, I feel I shouldn’t do anything to drown out the voices of people of color, specifically African-Americans, and what they have to say on this day to commemorate the legacy of Dr. King. So I am not going to. Instead, I want to refer you to this excellent article by Tyrone Beason published today:

Former Olympian John Carlos Raised a gloved fist for justice 50 years ago, but his act should inspire us today.

Go read it.

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 18 years I edited and published an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
