Today we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who devoted himself to the pursuit of justice and the service of others. Dr. King was many things to many people: Civil Rights icon, nonviolence pioneer, spiritual leader, and friend. But first and foremost, Dr. King was someone who dedicated his life to service.
This weekend is traditionally marked by an outpouring of community service across the country. I was honored to spend part of my weekend with Project 351, which brings together 8th graders from each and every city and town in Massachusetts for a weekend of service and discovery. We talked about the importance of putting others before ourselves, and always looking for common ground.
Speaking with rising servant leaders at Project 351.
I hope you are able to find some time, even an hour, to join a local organization and help strengthen our communities and serve those in need. I am continually inspired by the people I meet across the 6th district because so many of you spend so much of your time doing just that. I cannot thank you enough for all that you are doing to make this country a better place, and I promise to work hard every day to do the same. Thank you for trusting me to serve you in Congress.
Yours in service,
