Trying something new for MLK day this year

Instead of toeing this ideological line this year and honoring Martin Luther King through community service, I'm going to deviate slightly from my well documented progressive ideals and try something new.

I'm going to:
  • Go to work
  • Earn my paycheck
  • Pay my own bills
  • Feed my own family
  • Live within my means
I pledge not to:
  • Perpetuate a culture of hopelessness and apathy
  • Hold animosity toward others simply because they make more money than I
  • Wait for someone else to help me
  • Hate those who don't

This is for today only, because it's a holliday.
