Dearly Beloved Neighbor,

As we commemorate the life and enduring legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we reflect on the profound impact of a visionary leader whose words and actions continue to shape the course of history.

Rev. Dr. King's commitment to justice, equality, and nonviolent activism remains an inspiration for us all. His timeless quotes echo the call for a better world and serve as a guiding light in our collective journey towards a more inclusive society.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." These words remind us of the transformative power of love and compassion, urging us to be beacons of light in the face of darkness.

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." Rev. Dr. King's unwavering dedication to love and understanding challenges us to rise above hatred, promoting peace and unity in our communities.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." These words emphasize the interconnectedness of humanity, compelling us to stand against injustice wherever it exists.

On this special day and every day, let us celebrate Rev. Dr. King's life and everlasting legacy, drawing inspiration from his teachings and committing ourselves to the pursuit of justice, equity, and his dream come true.

In the spirit of Rev. Dr. King, may we continue to strive for a world where "the content of one's character" is the measure of true greatness.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns at Robyn.Porter@cga.ct.gov or 860-240-1371.

In Dedicated and Loyal Service,

Robyn A. Porter
