Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'
                                                         -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
As I've done in past years in honor of
Martin Luther King Jr Day, I share exceptional portraits and tattoo odes to a man who embodied Ghandi's "satyagraha" or "soul force" here in the US in furthering social justice (as set forth in his iconic "I have a Dream" speech). It's a day on which I reflect on how I can take at least some small action in working towards equality and harmony, and give back to my community. It's heartening that some people have chosen to tattoo this reminder for every day reflection.
