Westfield High School said it very well.
Today as we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day we remember his words shortly before his death - in a message about what people might say at his funeral, Dr. King said, "I’d like for somebody to say that day, that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to love somebody."
His influence in the country has been tremendously undeniable. Yes, we still have racial issues in this country but we also know how to treat and love each other better than we did. Each day is a journey to get better and to love better. Just like The Westfield Way is based on love and encourages Shamrocks to be 10% more kind, present, positive, and grateful than the day before, we know Dr. King's influence encourages us to love each other a little better today than we did yesterday!
Thanks to our Black Student Association we have a beautiful sign hanging in our halls that reminds us to strive to live up to Dr. King's example and work every day to love somebody. So that someday, someone might say of every Shamrock, "they loved somebody." #WHSRocks #MartinLutherKingJrDay2020
