Martin Luther King, Jr.

I strongly admire and support the conviction with which Dr. King pursued equality. He was the epitome of a voice for sanity and wisdom on that subject. We are all human and we all have our flaws, so I recognize that part of history as well. The message the man took to the U.S. Capitol was right, moral and good. Our founding fathers guaranteed that there would be a legacy of the belief that all men are created equal by putting it in writing in the Declaration of Independence.

I wish that today’s society would realize that in many ways, the dream has been surpassed. In many equally troubling ways, the dream has been perverted. You and you alone must decide the extent to which you embrace the founding fathers’ statements and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream. Will you stand up for the truth of it and demand, at last, that men and women be judged by the content of their character?

I pray we see that in my lifetime. I can’t imagine this man thought any class or race of people should be treated better, after the pursuit of equality has been achieved. I can’t believe he wanted the mindset of certain groups to develop a mentality of being entitled to something because of the color of their skin. That goes for black, white, brown, yellow, etc. I believe that was the purpose of his pursuit. God bless him and may He rest his soul.
