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.

 

 

One thought on “Life’s Playlist… Abraham, Martin and John by Dion

  1. The Lorraine Motel/museum in Memphis is a fantastic museum. Standing on the balcony and looking across to the building where James Earl Ray fired makes one think about what MLK “tried” to do for the country.
