Doesn’t it seem that the voting process is stuck in the 1800’s? Triplicate of paper forms, lines to wait in, and hanging out in school gymnasiums. Not exactly a recipe...
As we reflect today on MLK day, we realize the importance of activism and civil rights for all. Considered as the greatest orator of the 20th century, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s dream speech wasn’t even scripted for the last six minutes. We can learn several lessons from a great leader.
- Communicating with impact
- Communicate one idea only, with emotion and clarity
- Communicate only the most important idea if you want people to act
- Communicate real and emotional meaning in what you say
- Communicate with simplicity and meaning
Remember, this is our chance to continue Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s work. Each one of us has the ability to bring clarity and meaning to issues that affect us as individuals, as a community, as a country, as a world society. Each one of us has a dream. It’s up to us to continue the dream now and forever.
