Martin Luther King Jr. Day may be more important this year than ever before.
Because the United States could use some inspiration right now!
See what the President had to say PLUS more of the best #MLKDay tweets (below):
Dr. King was 26 when the Montgomery bus boycott began. He started small, rallying others who believed their efforts mattered, pressing on through challenges and doubts to change our world for the better. A permanent inspiration for the rest of us to keep pushing towards justice.

As you honor my father today, please remember and honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded two months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK50Forward #MLK pic.twitter.com/qhwSnX9Qmh

Today we honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you Dr. King for your sacrifice which has allowed me and many generations of black people to enjoy freedoms denied to our ancestors. Our journey still continues but your teachings and lessons still hold true today.

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have encouraged every responsible human being to march for justice, to march for peace, and most of all, to march for the impeachment of Donald Trump. #ThankYouMLK50

The arc of the moral universe bends toward justice, but it doesn├óΓé¼Γäót get there on its own. “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

50 years after Dr. King’s last birthday, it’s up to all of us to keep his Dream of a Beloved Community alive: don’t demean and belittle, inspire and empower; don’t isolate and abuse, embrace and serve.
