“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
This quote, by Martin Luther King Jr., was part of a speech given to students at Spelman college. Although the road ahead for civil rights was daunting, he encouraged them to not be discouraged. Instead of giving up, they should do what they can to keep moving forward.
Many did. And collectively, they made a difference.
This quote, and its origin, inspires us to run if we can’t fly, walk if we can’t run, and crawl if we can’t walk. Moreover, it reminds us that we don’t need any special super powers to face insurmountable life challenges. We may not be able to fly but we can do the little bit we can to move forward.Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2020
