Our lives begin to end...

Real Estate Agent with Red Rock Real Estate UT DRE# 6541633-SA00

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

 

Another great quote by Martin Luther King Jr. One that is straight and true, getting to the heart of what is important. As Americans, we have rights and must use them to their fullest or they may become altered to fit an agenda.

 

As real estate agents, we must also speak up to better our local Board offices, take part in the elections or serve on a committee and to report unethical behavior. This improves the standard of business practice for all.

 

Remaining quiet often means a yes or no, whether intended, either or. Martin Luther King Jr. lived by his words and in turn, we should stand by ours. How else can positive change be made? Happy Birthday Mr. King!

 

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. This is so true right now, we must protect America at all costs from enemies, both foreign and domestic.

We do need to speak up and hold our truths to the light.Staying quiet serves no one and in fact can destroy entire nations. Learn from history.

You are very welcome Sham Reddy CRS, glad you appreciate this very important message. Martin Luther King Jr. always spoke up, stood up and lived truthfully! We should honor him and do the same.

Wanda, I saw this post the other day and was so glad to see it featured. I will admit to being one that keeps quiet. I fear that one day, it will come back to bite me and all of us who are holding our tongues. 

I think you and I come from the same place and I am appalled every day that it is broadcast in the media, how 'good' one side is and the vitriol is thrown like MEAN GIRLS (and guys) to the other side. They fail to see that ½ of the world and more importantly, ½ of Americans do not agree with them....AND, that half are the silent majority who do NOT spread vitriol at every turn. 

When anyone from the silent majority speaks up, they are knocked down - and HARD. I just don't understand how the other ½ doesn't even SEE this going on...or realize what they are doing!

And, what a wonderful tribute to MLK. I am confident he is turning over in his grave - and has been for quite some time now.

Yes, we are definitely in agreement Debe Maxwell, CRS. The horrific events that have taken place all over the country by those with a hate agenda are despicable and go against every belief I hold dear. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of faith and believed in non-violence as I do. The outright dishonesty by politicians, the msm and media giants is on display for all to see but some are blind to it. We are being told to unite but patriotic, law abiding citizens, who cannot be bought, do not easily forgive and forget.

That is so true - 5 years of bashing a man who was serving us at his leisure - not taking a dime for working for us. While we may not love his personality, we should respect the office. We did that. Now, we're doing it again and now, I feel like it's being rubbed in the faces of those who didn't support the current president. I'm not now, nor have I ever been good with double-standards. If this isn't just that, I don't know what is!

I meant they started bashing him the year prior to the election...really, before that!

It is definitely a Do As I Say, Not As I Do scenario and like you, a double standard is unacceptable and has no place in my life. There will be further divide with that in place and encouraged!

YES and that worries me terribly. People I love are behaving that way. I think you're so right about the time they spend watching the news. We USED to be able to believe everything they said. Then, they all found an agenda to support and it soon became opinionism instead of journalism. 

It's so upsetting to me that people I have always had so much respect for, have fallen prey to this...and are now participating in the bashing! 

Well, all I know is that I have a good conscience. I will not allow them to change me! 😏

Saw this via Barbara's reblog.  It's a sad state that we find our country in when what you are speaking out against can be muted if it doesn't fit the "state" agenda.  It's so frightening.

I met Mr. King as an eight year old boy in Montgomery Al. He was with an entourage of 20  people or more and he looked so important on the steps of Dexter Ave Baptist Church but we weren't allowed to go in and here him preach I had to wait for my friend Ty on the steps outside. But you could here the singing and when you here Amazing Grace it brought chills to you.
