Remember Martin Luther King, Jr.


Martin Luther King, Jr. (Jan 15, 1929 -April 4, 1968)

  • "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 my four little 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."
  • "Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children."
  • "Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness."
  • "History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident calmor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."
  • "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
  • "Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal."
  • "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
  • "Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men."
  • "We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear."
  • "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."

Makes one wonder that people that speak so well and dedicate their lives to bring peace and love not only in our country , but around the world always get assassinated .Man seems to have chosen the path of "destructive selfishness" as Dr. King wrote .
He was and is today and always will be a Great man amongst little ignorant minds .

It took Dr. Martin Luter King 8, 5 YEARS to change a World.

I just want to add that, Dr. King, after his childhood/teen time and time as a pastor, did all Civil Rights movement in only 8,5 last years of his life.

8,5 YEARS took Dr. King to change the World and to teach us how we should look at it and at each others.

We should take that as a guide what WE could do in our life time, at least.
