Thermostat or thermometer: Martin Luther King III
The 16,000 enthusiastic kids at National We Day saw video excerpts from the famous “I have a dream” speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. The speech is moving anytime, anywhere, but on a big screen in a big venue with big sound and a big audience, well, it was hair-raisingly powerful.
His son, Martin Luther King III, then took the stage to share lessons learned from his father. One lesson was: Do you want to be a thermostat or a thermometer?
Do you want to report on conditions around you, or do you want to regulate what happens? Do you want to do nothing more than sit back and observe, or do you want to take action to make things more comfortable for everyone?
