“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Sunday, January 15, marks the birthday of this inspirational leader. This MLK Day, let’s honor his advocacy of civil rights by asking ourselves: “What am I doing for my community?”
After all, we make up this world we share, and how we choose to interact in it makes a difference. So, do we choose indifference or do we choose to become a part of something greater than ourselves?
At HealthPoint, we believe that health care is a human right and we are dedicated to protecting that right for ALL people in our communities. As Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The ultimate tragedy is not oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.” We urge you not to be a silent participant of 2017, but an active, attentive, and vocal one.
