It’s more than just a day off. But unfortunately, MLK Jr. Day Monday in some communities has dwindled down to just that. Yet, we believe it’s not because of lack of motivation, all that’s needed is a little direction. Bottom line: The opportunity is here, the history is here and you’re here, so its time to do something.

Here’s 3 things you can do to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy:

1. Learn Something (Research, Research, Research!)

“For lack of knowledge, my people perish.” Dr. King may not have been the one who said that but the quote is still true today. Many of us rely on what “he said”, “she said” or “they said” and just leave it at that. When we say, “Learn something”, its not just learning about history, learn about the future too! How, you ask? Research industries that will be booming in the next five, 10, 15 years. Research what is being invested in. Research how your neighborhood may change. And remember, one of the best ways to learn something is to teach what you learned to someone else (hint, hint).
