Martin Luther King Jr. Day

4. Research MLK’s life.

Sure, we learned about him in elementary school, but how much do you actually remember? Watch Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech on YouTube or look up the five books he wrote and add them to your reading list. If you’re really a history buff, read up on the people that inspired him, such as Gandhi and Henry David Thoreau.

5. Practice courage.

Jay-Z said it best: “Martin Luther walked so Obama could run.” Without an insane amount of courage, the Civil Rights movement could have been a bust. Choose to be brave today. Try something you’ve never done, and take that scary next step towards a goal. There are no excuses!
