Martin Luther King Jr. World Peace Rose Garden tribute!

This January 15th marks the birthday of one of the most influential civil rights leaders in history, Martin Luther King Jr.

There are many things why we remember Martin Luther King Jr. However, the most significant one is that our civil liberties came at a high cost.

As well as Gandhi in India, Martin Luther King believed that the best tactic to beat oppression and achieve freedom was to not use violence. He said that “passivity is powerful when used correctly!"

Now just because you are good to others, there is no assurance they will be good for you. There are no kindness-back guarantees in life. This doesn’t mean that being good to others isn’t worth it. Resisting the immediate urge for violent action can be more effective in the long run. Kill them with kindness.

Thanks to everything Dr. King did in his life, the city in Atlanta honored him by building the Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have a Dream” World Peace Rose Garden.

This beautiful Garden has 185 roses in a variety of colors and fragrances and it was created as a sanctuary of peace, love, and inspiration for people of all nations, cultures, and religions.

At EQR we want to honor Martin Luther King on his day by recommending you the rose colors his ideals represent - so that the next time you see one of these roses you feel identified with their meaning.

Peace: White and Blue

Love: Red and Pink

Inspiration: Lavender and Yellow

For any person who admires Martin Luther King Jr. His work, his ideas and how he changed the world for good, the Atlanta Rose Garden is a must-go destination.
