Happy MLK Day to the dedicated minority!

By Michelle May, M.D.

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better. -Martin Luther King, Jr.martin luther king

Dr. King’s words and actions have inspired the world. Indeed, he was the epitome of the “dedicated minority” just decades ago. Today, on Martin Luther King Day, just log in to twitter.com (speaking of a creative minority that changed the world!), and put #mlk in the search box. You’ll see a beautiful stream of quotes and ideas that inspired these individuals–ironically, shared in a medium that has given them a voice (well a 140 character sound bite anyway!). Indeed, Dr. King made the world better and his words echo still.

His words inspire me to remember that although my little voice of reason is often drowned out by the diet and weight-loss industry, creativity and dedication can change the world.

I have a dream.

Happy Birthday Dr. King!
