Martin Luther King, Jr. Honor and Respect

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man who deserves to be honored and respected.  Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, is a day very worthy of being celebrated.   Martin Luther King, Jr. deserves this honor and much, much more.  The opportunities many have today are a result of Martin Luther King, Jr. vision and work.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream not for himself but for all mankind.  A dream of equality, freedom, and justice.  Nothing Martin Luther King, Jr. did centered on himself, it all centered on others.  His life was one of service to others unconditionally.

As a young boy from a different country, Martin Luther King, Jr. taught me a major life lesson, one that I learned very early in my life.  He taught me not only to dream, but to fully expect the dream to be fulfilled.  No matter how huge or impossible the dream may seem, it can come true if we are willing to climb to the top of the mountain, and work to fulfill our dream.

I Hope you take the time today to reflect on the life of an honorable and just man, who left an example of how to live in service to others.  Martin Luther King, Jr was and still a man who deserves to be both honored and respected.

He stood out at the time looking for equality and not looking for anyone to get hurt. His was a peaceful acknowledgement and he would have accomplished much had his life not been taken so tragically.

Hi George,
I love how legal immigrants, such as your family, understand and value the American dream of creating your own success. I am proud to have you as a friend and fellow American.

George, I doubt words will ever properly describe the courage and wisdom of this man.  And at such a young age.  m

Hi George- I echo what Carol Williams said. The values you learned from your family and Dr. King are to be admired.  I have always admired Dr. King's commitment to peaceful change.

Being able to dream and expect that dream to be fulfilled is definitely something everyone should do.

A public figure with the strength and character of Martin Luther King, Jr. is very needed these days.

George Souto, MLK Jr is one of my all-time heroes, a man who spoke his truth every day until his untimely death. Elvis's protest song was the result of that.

George Souto: What a great man he was. I will never forget watching him as a kid and the March on Washington on our Black and White TV in our living room.

Some of the MLK day events were disrupted by snow in our area.

Have an outstanding week.
