Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase.

Whether you're spending your Martin Luther King, Jr. Day stuck behind a desk or serving your community, remember that from humble beginnings come great things.

This modest two-story Queen Anne was home to the ne plus ultra civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. from birth until the age of twelve. Of course at the time he was just a kid who got a kick out of tearing the heads off of his sister's dolls, but let that be a reminder to all of us that it's never to late (or early) to turn things around.
