THOUGHT FOR TODAY
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King
Not everyone has the courage to stand up for what is right and do something about it like Martin Luther King Jr did. He
was courageous and made a difference in a lot of folks lives.
We can all make a difference by the way we treat others. The golden rule, to treat others as you would like to be treated, is one to always remember and follow.
A little smile or a pat on the back can do a lot to give others the encouragement they need to make through a tough day. You never know what others might be going through.
We need to love one another the best way we can.
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday !
