Withour making a comparison between Dr. King and others, I just want to quote him on this day:
“A man (or woman) should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better. If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, like Shakespeare wrote poetry, like Beethoven composed music; sweep streets so well that all the host of Heaven and earth will have to pause and say, “Here lived a great street sweeper, who swept his job well.”
I keep this quote on my desk and have since I went to college to remind myself to do my job to the best of my ability. It would be great if all of our politicians, especially those of the highest office of the land, considered this quote and did their jobs well. A hope on this day of celebration of a noble man.
