Quote: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

Fact: Martin Luther King Jr. became a minister because he said he felt an "inner urge" calling him to "serve humanity." He knew that becoming a civil rights leader would be dangerous, but he cared more about helping others than protecting himself.

What kids can do: Volunteer to help a charity. Invite friends and relatives to come and volunteer with you.
