Purpose (69/365)

We went to the Martin Luther King Memorial today and it was inspiring to see a man with such singular purpose who made such a huge difference in the world. May we all have the courage to stay committed to our individual purpose. A few of my favorite MLK quotes:

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

SHELTER - "The Purpose, The Passion"

Inventory, desires and dreams
My dreams, my story, my fire, my theme
My theme gettin' focused on what I really call my own self,
fine tunin' me and no one else, no one else
The purpose, the passion, the reason to go on,
the explanation why our drive can be so strong
The purpose, the passion, the why I sing this song
gives me the strength that kept me goin' for so long

Necessity, a chance to touch my soul
My soul, what's good for me, firmin' up these goals
These goals and if I fall short I'll know I was reachin' high, high, high,
if I fall short I'll die knowin' that I tried, I tried

The purpose, the passion, the reason to go on,
the explanation why our drive can be so strong
The purpose, the passion, the why I sing this song
gives me the strength that kept me goin' for so long

If it's always feel that, face it
Just accept it that I had to try
Yes, I know that I won't make it
But the passion is what's keepin' me alive

The purpose, the passion, the reason to go on,
the explanation why our drive can be so strong
The purpose, the passion, the why I sing this song
gives me the strength that kept me goin' for so long
