Martin Luther King, Jr. — Everybody Can Be Great Because Anybody Can Serve

Send letters to the editor to jenny.manning@patch.com. Please include your first and last name and city of residence.

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day I am reflecting on Dr. King's quote: 

"Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't need a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." - Martin Luther King Jr.

If each of us were to spend some quiet time thinking about this and where we are called to serve--not only would each of us have more personal fulfillment in our lives, but our communities would be much better.

—Richard Bray, Renton
