Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr's Dream Today

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr Day. Please take a moment to remember... 

to reflect... to honor his dream...

a dream that is as valid today as it was decades ago.

 

I have a dream by Martin Luther King, Jrpicture courtesy of Care2 ecards

 

"I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream."

 

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character."

 

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed - we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

 

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

 

"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."

"The time is always right to do what is right."

                                                                            .... Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have gained a GREAT appreciation for MLK Nina Hollander . I grew up in a very conservative home and my father did not like MLK so it took me awhile to see through my fathers prejudice.

Bob "RealMan" Timm ~ good morning, Bob... I very much believe that MLK and his legacy were appreciated much more long after he died than in his lifetime.

Good morning Nina.  He was a great man whose dream has yet to fully be realized.  We should all strive to make it a reality.

Good Morning Nina - Dr. King's words should be studied today.  His dream as he said is rooted in the American Dream.

May the dream live on and may those who have achieved their dream recognize the who, when, where, and why it all happened. There are many people involved in the dream. Martin Luther King was a beacon of light.

He was a great - inspirational man who's life was cut short way to soon.

I love this one:

Grant Schneider ~ hi Grant, you make an excellent point. I'm not convinced that but with few exceptions his words are not studied all that much... or we wouldn't have quite so much violence.

George Souto ~ good morning, George. I'm with you on that. I remember clearly that awful year when both Dr King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated as if it was yesterday. That was very much a seminal year for our nation because of those killings IMHO.
