You are the master of your fate

I am the master of my fate; I am captain of my soul (William Ernest Henley)

Our life is made up of series of choices and consequences. The moment we decide to take full responsibility for the things that happen in our life, it will begin to change for the better.

This month, all over the country and the world events and activities will be held to commemorate his contributions and achievements with are many and noteworthy. He was a leader, preacher, activist, and writer. I believe one of his greatest works was written in 1963 from his jail cell in Birmingham Alabama.
