Prompt for K-Grade 12
The following quotes are from Martin Luther King Jr. Please see the following MLK grade guidelines and tell us what your thoughts and action would be for yourself from his quotes. How can his quotes aspire you to do something for the Morristown Community?
Grades K-2 essay or drawn picture
1. “If you can’t fly then run, If you can’t run then walk, If you can’t walk then crawl. But whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”.
2. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
3. “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”
4. Everything in the world is interconnected. For example, unhealthy living anywhere leads to lower productivity and increased health care costs which affects your business, workplace, health insurance premium, government, etc. and, in turn, your health. So, if a part of the population does not have access to healthy food, opportunity to exercise and affordable healthcare, you eventually will be affected. A healthy society benefits everyone.
