I warmed my hands in the eternal flame at Martin Luther King Jr.'s grave site and let the warmth of flame and the power of his life invigorate me, inspire me. He was a mortal man, fallible though great. He and all his followers were flawed, had feelings, made mistakes, just like me. I can't excuse myself for passing up opportunities to serve because those who have made a difference were heroes and I'm not. Finding my own way to pass on the flame is a challenge which requires continuous study and committment.
