"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
I find this quote to resonate particularly since it seems as though throughout my entire adult life (I was 18 in 1995) our presidents have governed as populists rather than leaders. Yet we proclaim that they are the leaders of the Free World. Until we find someone who governs by the law of the land and acts on their principles rather than public opinion, our leaders are, in fact, followers. This quote alone explains why Martin Luther King, Jr. was and will always be a respected leader, whereas our so-called present day leaders will be remembered as anything but.
