"People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other."

King, M. L. (1958, May). "Advice for living." Ebony, 13(7), 112. Retrieved from MasterFILE Premier, 48347474.

It has been almost 60 years since Dr. King wrote these words in an advice column. They are as true and meaningful today as they were when he wrote them. As we celebrate his birthday, let us understand each other not with the broad brush of ideology or group membership, but as unique individuals who are much more similar to ourselves than different.

Happy Birthday, Dr. King
Martin Luther King, Jr., January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968
