Tuesday Quote of the Day
Just a few days left in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio and we're crushing it in medals. I was looking around for a quote and for some reason this one stood out. This message and speech has always been at the top of my list. Must read for today's Olympic quote.
Today's quote isn't from an olympian, but this man definitely deserves a medal in his own category. There is so much in hate in the world that covers the news because the people want it. I believe we lose sight of what we have. A Russian swimmer made a statement this week that America has changed her and we don't know how lucky we are. She went on to say that people smile in America.
My point is simple. Let hate breed among hate and let love overcome everything. Today's generation just see girls hugging in this photograph. I see two athletes brought together by love. It's the passion for their sport and competing for the United States of America that holds them tight in this photo.
In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. gave the, "I have a dream" speech. That was 53 years ago. Think about that. Your grandmother could have attended schools that didn't allow African American kids. Your grandfather could have witnessed friends being hung from trees. That was just 53 years ago. Sadly, the struggle for racial equality still exists and we see it on the news and online every day. I share this quote and this photo not to express we're perfect. I attach this photo and implore YOU to share this message so we can ALL see what's possible when we don't judge each other.
