In Barack Obama’s most recent book, A Promised Land, he mentioned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Drum Major Instinct” message. He talked about how deep down, we all may want to be first, celebrated for our greatness, or lead the parade. He pointed out that such selfish impulses can be reconciled by aligning that quest with more selfless aims. Leading in service and love are pursuits that can have a significant impact, especially as we embark on this new year.
Although some challenges remain the same, we will continue to move forward with hope and effort towards progress. Please stay tuned for more details regarding the Drum Major Empowerment Scholarship Foundation, Inc. Application details for the Presidential X Award coming soon. DMEscholarship.org.
Stay safe and Happy New Year!
