“Our lives begin to end the day
we become silent about things that matter.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This past November many of the delegations from high schools and universities across the country who attended the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice found time to visit the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial on Washington DC’s Mall. They shared stories of taking time for prayer and reflection and the inspiration they felt as they encountered the images and quotations present at the memorial. One university student commented, “How could I come to Washington, DC for a ‘social justice’ teach-in and not visit Dr. King’s memorial?”
How has your passion for social justice been inspired by Dr. King’s life?
