On this #EducationandSharingDay, we celebrate educators who empower children to grow – not only academically – but also as kind, empathetic, and responsible individuals. Let’s acknowledge, too, that we don’t have to be children to learn or professional educators to teach. May we all strive to continuously learn, share, and work together for the common good.

As we reflect on and honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. today, this question is as relevant as ever. In the midst of what feels like perpetual injustice in our world, our nation, and even our communities, we are inspired by and challenge ourselves with his words. Let us start by helping in whatever way we can. If you have minutes to spare, volunteer. If you have dollars to share, donate. If you have a kind word that might lift someone up, say it. Take action large or small. #mlkday
