    Dr. Martin Luther King Day fell on the same day as President Obama’s second swearing-in and I learned from our sister site, NewsOne, in order to celebrate this day, we should serve.

    I realized that no matter how much I want to diet, exercise, stop being late and start returning phone calls, I don’t focus enough on others. Personally, I don’t give back enough. Dr. King’s day of service taught me that and so did the Inauguration. It’s easy to focus on yourself and forget the world is bigger than we are. A simple helping hand can go a long way and many of us, myself included, tend to keep said hands busy with life’s trivial obstacles.

    President Obama’s speech focused on equality and he and his family share their own busy lives to give back. I put two and two together and figured, why don’t we all–scratch that. Why don’t I try harder as someone who is blessed enough to not be in severe need, to help my fellow brothers and sisters. I’m inspired. I want to give back.
