Martin Luther King on Sacrifice

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But...the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?

Martin Luther King, Jr.


In memory of and to honor James Jenkins, of Columbus, Ohio, who gave his life trying to save five-year-old Elijah Walker from drowning in icy cold waters.

Jenkins was just driving by and saw the child, who'd fallen through thin ice, struggling in a pond. The water was just too cold - police and rescue personnel struggled as well - Jenkins succumbed, still holding the unconscious boy up, trying to keep him above the water. Elijah passed three days later.
