Read full description of the books:
This was a short read, taking me only an hour in the park one day. It is a spiritual essay discussing man’s place here on earth. I enjoyed it. One of my favorite parts of the book is when he talks about doing your best at all times:
“He should seek to do his job so well that the living, the dead, or the unborn could not do it better. No matter how small one thinks his life’s work is in terms of the norms of the world and the so-called big jobs, he must realize that it has cosmic significance if he is serving humanity and doing the will of God.”
He then inserted a poem by Douglas Mallock that I am loving:
“If you can’t be a highway, just be a trial;
If you can’t be the sun, be a star;
For it isn’t by size that you win or you fail-
Be the best of whatever you are.”
Sometimes we get so caught up in where we see ourselves, where we want to be, that we forget to be our best where we presently are. Just because every situation may not reflect our ambitious dreams, it is important to remember that the climb gives purpose to reaching the top.

Read information about the authorMartin Luther King, Jr. was one of the pivotal leaders of the American civil rights movement. King was a Baptist minister, one of the few leadership roles available to black men at the time. He became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955–1956) and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (1957), serving as its first president. His efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. Here he raised public consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of the greatest orators in U.S. history. In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means.
King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Jimmy Carter in 1977. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a national holiday in the United States in 1986. In 2004, King was posthumously awarded a Congressional Gold Medal.
