In Memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, we reflect on his marvelous impact.
"America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked ''insufficient funds.'' But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt."
50 years later, we look back and reflect. Working with the scraps we our given in our country in 2018, we are still thankful for Dr. Martin Luther King. Without him, ask yourself where will you be. Can you imagine? I definitely can't. Everyone knew he didn't promote violence. Peacefully impacting a nation, moving through whatever was thrown his way.
That's nothing but ambition and dedication to bring change to the people. To see a man hold as much power and push for the people as much as he did is something that should be saluted from all races. He didn't "die" for our rights, he was killed for what he stood for. That's a common misconception. A powerful figure, a man of peace. Martin Luther King Jr's. life was taken from him April 4, 1968.
If you never heard the full audio and video for his legendary I Have a Dream Speech, today's your day. Put some time to the side and listen to some spoken word. It is up to us to strive for a better tomorrow. Dr. King is gone, but his legacy lives on. His vision is one that should be carried out. This country is far from perfect, but as long as we have each other we can make change. That's something that Dr. King wanted.
"Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of biterness and hatred."
