The evening before he was assassinated, Dr. King was preparing to lead a protest march to help support striking sanitation workers. Dr. King was hard at work doing his job to help others do their hard jobs.
Thank you to the city sanitation workers and thank you to the city street sweepers. I appreciate your work. Des Moines is a beautiful city filled with people who care about our community and I’m proud to live here.
Thank you Dr. King for all you’ve done, especially for your call to service helping working people across the nation. I’m particularly fond of this quote:
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” ~ a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King.
Be the best you can be at what you do as an attorney. Let me know if you’d like my help to help you help your client on a case involving work and disability!! I’ll strive to be of valued service to your case.
My professional rehabilitation counseling practice is focused on helping people participate in the world around them, particularly in their own world of work.
