Here are some inspirational words from current volunteers:

Several volunteers recorded their own words to describe how the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired them. Our Audiovision program broadcasted their words on the January 20th, 2014 Dr. King holiday:

  • "[name of TBBC staff person]:  This entire (Martin Luther King Day) broadcast was beautifully done thanks to you and [name of TBBC staff person]. It was wonderful hearing what each person had to say.  Please tell [name of TBBC staff person] he did a magnificent job (editing).  The music and the visuals were just right - not overwhelming.  I really enjoyed the broadcast."
  • "Thank you for sharing this – I had intended to listen and work at the same time, but I’m totally captivated. I can only listen. Thank you for letting me be a part of this."
  • "I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed listening to the (Martin Luther) King tribute program. The visuals, music & especially peoples’ remembrances were all very moving.When King was assassinated in April 1968 I did hear about it, but there was not so much news coverage in Canada, especially in Montreal.  We didn’t have a TV in the dorm, and I was busy with exams so it sadly didn’t make that much of an impact on me. It wasn’t until I came home for the summer, and we then had another assassination – Robert Kennedy – that I realized what a tragic year 1968 had been for our country."

From a volunteer at our 2013 Fall Festival: "It was our pleasure to help out in a small way. We came to the event (October fall festival) expecting to ‘give,’ and ended up actually ‘getting’ a lot from the experience. So, thank you!"
