The Dream Lives On


"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."


"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

What an amazing man.

Scott Oglesby said...

He was a great, great man, and one of the most inspiring writers and orators in history. As a fellow blogger pointed out today it’s so sad that the ‘leaders’ of todays version of the civil rights movement are Sharpton and Jackson. He’d roll over in his grave if he saw what they are doing to the movement.

God Bless MLK forever!!
