Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Devin Berry

Dr. King said, “I’ve decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” It was the sticking to love that has inspired me and supported me over my own journey—his willingness to live in the integrity of that for which he stood. His steadfastness and forthrightness mirrors what I’ve been taught in the Dharma and what I try to put forth in my practice. “Taking the seat with dignity” is often thought of as standing against hate and injustice, but it’s important to note that Dr. King actually took a stand for love, for equality, for equity, for compassion, for empathy, for non-harming.
