Preparing to Honor Martin Luther King Jr.

As we get closer to the day we celebrate the life of an American hero, there is a simple action that will help you as you are preparing to Honor Martin Luther King Jr.

A Well Regarded Leader

Dr. King is one of the most revered and respected people in our history. He has left a legacy of honor and integrity. Most Americans view him favorably.

In a couple weeks we will see a lot of praise for Dr. King. We will see the words that he said used across social media to inspire and remember the great work of Dr. King.

His legacy, it seems, is firmly entrenched in our minds. Most of us wish to honor Dr. King, and many of us will do it by sharing quotes from his life. I highly recommend it. In fact, I would like to make a suggestion: start preparing to honor Marin Luther King Jr. today. Here’s how.

Five Minutes a Day

Employ the simple steps of success or 5 minutes a day method and read the work of Dr. King. It’s really easy. Audible has a ton of audiobooks for Dr. King, many of them thirty to sixty minutes long. Most of them are quite inexpensive. Simply pick a book and learn more about this American hero.

If you have to choose just one book, I highly recommend Letter from a Birmingham Jail. Why? Because it will give you insights into Dr. King most people don’t have. Did you know that he was very unpopular in his day? Many people don’t. This book will give you a good indication why.

Instead of being like all the other people who quote Dr. King without knowing who he really was, you can be a step ahead of the rest by simply listening to an insightful and inspirational leader. For about four dollars and five minutes of your drive time a day, you could be preparing to Honor Martin Luther King Jr.

It’s just five minutes a day. Depending on which book or speech you choose, you could be done in 6 to 10 days. Then when we honor him in a couple weeks, you could have a greater insight than most everyone else posting about him. 

The time to start is now. Buy a book and start today.
