Food for Thought from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK jr quote

 

I LOVE this quote from MLK Jr. because it is essentially the mission statement of The Bronx Socialite. I fully admit that I was one of those Bronxites that couldn’t wait to get out and move to Manhattan to “find people that are as sophisticated as I am” and so on. As I delved deeper into my journalistic projects in college, I found out that the Bronx has so many wonderful things going for it and how selfish it was of me to complain about my hometown not having certain things while making absolutely no contribution to making it better. Now, almost three years later, I feel just as passionate about bettering the Bronx as I did when I began the blog and I love that.
