How can we make the world a better place? Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2013

Take a look at your hands.

If you ball them up into a fist, what can you do with them?

Not a lot. Punch something, get in a fight…maybe fist-bump a friend.

Now open them. What can you do now?

A high five. A handshake. A hug. A friendly wave. A helping hand for someone who needs it.
