Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.

The George F. Landegger Collection of Alabama Photographs in Carol M. Highsmith’s America, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.

Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, from The George F. Landegger Collection of Alabama Photographs in Carol M. Highsmith’s America, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction…The chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.” —Strength To Love, 1963

Martin Luther King Jr. made the world a better place. His peaceful activism, love for leading his church and powerful speeches still impact and influence people on a daily basis. The way he stood up for the oppressed and fought for what was right, even though it cost him his life, is important to remember as we think about him around the time of  his birthday.

Honoring Veteran’s Day

veterans_day

A veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to the people of the United States of America for any amount up to and including their life.” – Lt. Col. Boyd Lackey, author with a Ph.D in psychology who spent 36 years as a military chaplain around the world, and who is also a WORDsearch user.

Veteran’s Day is a time set apart to stop and think about the people who have served the United States by fighting in wars and protecting our country throughout the years. As our way of honoring veterans today here at WORDsearch, we want to share our memories and appreciation of what they have done and what it means to us.

Remembering September 11

9/11, September 11, wordsearch bible

Most people remember exactly where they were on September 11, 2001.

That morning, I walked into my math class where my teacher uncharacteristically had the radio on, listening to the news. The first plane had hit. When class was over, a few of us rushed down to the school library where they had a TV on the news channel. We watched the footage, horrified, as they played the images of terrorism over and over.
