Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Celebration!
"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.' I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."
-- Martin Luther King Jr.
Today we will celebrate with memorial services, youth conferences, art, parades, prayers, marches, awards and tributes to this great man known for ...
We have come so far, but the fight is not over until every member of our society no longer knows discrimination.
I wanted to write my own tribute this morning to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., instead I'm going to direct you to Barbara's Journal <-- click because I couldn't say it any better if I tried.
