Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. frequently spoke of the immeasurable value of service to various endeavors that strive to make the world a better place. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, millions honor King’s legacy by volunteering for charities and other organizations. And any of us can make that effort—to give the gift of our time so that we might move from words to action. Your work may be a small part of a greater goal, but the march forward only happens when we are brave enough to take that first step. And once we do, we often find that we are not walking alone.
