Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King firmly believed in and advocated for equal rights among all races. He gained significant recognition during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, while delivering his notable "I Have A Dream Speech”. Dr. King believed that love was a stronger force than hatred and made it his mission to spread the power of love and acceptance. King inspired hope within those around him that one day people of any race could join hands as one.

Martin Luther King Jr. believed in using nonviolent practices to create peace within the community and was one of the first civil-rights activists in the 1960's that orchestrated nonviolent protests. He arranged boycotts, sit-ins, and marches to safely and effectively improve the quality of life for African Americans in the United States.

Let us remember Martin Luther King Jr. for the vision he worked towards, and come together to love and respect each other regardless of our differences. To learn more or get involved with Columbus’ MLK Day of Service, click here

It’s a new year and with it comes the chance for a new start. No one anticipated a global pandemic, having to isolate themselves or having to work from home. However, many of us had to change the way we conducted our lives. For many of us, it forced us to slow down and take a look at ourselves. Though 2020 was a hard year, it brought us together as a community and gave us the opportunity to be there for one another. We were able to discover new parts of ourselves and to learn to be grateful for all that we have. In the upcoming year, we challenge you to think about how you can have a better 2021. Below we’ve compiled a few ways to help you create a better year.

1.  Set aside time for yourself. A major lesson many of us learned last year is that we valued productivity over self-care. It’s important to make time to recharge and to take care of your well-being so that you can be the best version of yourself. Try setting aside a certain time of day or a certain amount of time each day meant only for you.

2.  Make realistic, attainable goals and start small. Have you been thinking about losing weight, waking up earlier or trying a new hobby? 2020 taught us that we have resilience and that we can get through anything. Set small tasks that you know you can accomplish and the move on to bigger goals once you’re ready.

3.  Make connections. No one can do anything alone and it’s important to have a support system. We learned last year to be grateful for the people in our lives and now is the perfect time to show those you love that you care.

4.  Exercise. We know that exercise is always at the top of the list when mentioning things to do differently in the upcoming year—and for good reason. When we take the time to engage in physical activity, we release hormones that provide a positive boost in our mood. Don’t forget to keep a water bottle handy to stay hydrated.
Whatever you chose to do this year, keep a positive mindset. Think positive and the rest will follow.
