Today we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. A man who did so much to advance the civil rights movement, and I wonder what Dr. King would think if he was alive today. Would he be surprised that nearly 50 years after his assassination that there was still so much unrest and work to be done? I’m not sure if he would be surprised but probably a bit sad and still 100% committed to seeing equality.
I Have a Dream
I have dream too, Dr. King, that some day people will truly be color blind, just as you dreamt too. They will judge you on your character and actions, not the color of your skin, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. I have dream that some day the lightness will overtake the darkness and fear and hate will not overshadow the humanity and kindness of people. I have a dream that some day I will sing “Free at last!”
I have a dream that some day your beautiful dream comes true.
