Today is the day, as a nation, we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
He was truly a man of God who sacrificed his own well-being to ensure that the message of true hope and change was delivered.
We ARE all created equal. We all have breath of life and the opportunity to do something with that life. The more we focus on differences, hate and trying to make ourselves look better than “the other,” because of our own pride, our society will suffer as a result.
We are also quite human, though.
Are we a perfect nation with perfect people? No. However, people like Dr. King come along to remind us, we can do better, despite our humanness.
A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.
All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
