“Dr. King is a reminder to me of two components, leadership in the sense of somebody stepping out and taking an ordinary person and becoming an extraordinary person. There is a time when you need to step up to the plate and enter into your greatness. I think that is what Dr. King did. He stepped into a place of greatness. I think also that every great leader needs a movement. It is a reminder that we needed to create a modern day movement for our leaders. For example, Obama is a great leader but he needs a movement. This is what I think about when I think of Dr. King.”
