Life’s Playlist… Abraham, Martin and John by Dion

On this date in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered.

I don’t remember MLK, but I believe his mission was one that we can still learn from today.  Unfortunately as with many things in today’s society we have bastardized the original intent, putting a stain on the words of Mr. King.

Mr. King fought against racism and inequality, I believe that 99% of our country deplores racism of any kind and inequality.  HOWEVER, some of those who MLK fought for lead the racism charge at every turn.

Many of those who have made a career of “carrying on the dream of King,” are some of the most racist members of our society.  These professional “victims” are as dangerous as a man dressed in a sheet.

Until we ALL start to embrace the dream King preached for everyone in our society we will not find a nation free of bigotry.

To gain this equal justice for all, a cornerstone of responsibility and lifting oneself up has to be in the hearts of every citizen.

When we all honor our society, our nation and our fellow-man, we can reach the dream, but the dream cannot be achieved until all sides come together and accept responsibility for the injustices we still find ourselves trapped in.
