"We are all links in the great chain of humanity. We have before us the glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of love into the veins of our civilization." Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, many will be celebrating Martin Luther King Day, mostly in America I think. But, still being American even though I now live in the UK, I still like to think on this day & what it means to so many. He was a great man who stood up for the freedoms of many people at that time & suffered a lot for it. Just like when people go to war to fight for freedom (or so they say its for) so did he. He didn't want everyone to be fighting and arguing, but he wanted equality for ALL!! He wanted us to be able to walk side by side in love and understanding for our differences as well as our likenesses! I don't believe you have to be black to understand or to celebrate this day...but just someone who can love a person no matter where they come from or the colour of their skin. Because freedom belongs to us all & right now even in this decade there are people struggling and fighting for their freedom still, we can all lend a voice to their cause and keep Freedom and alive and thriving for them & future generations to come!
Question of the day: From one of King's speeches..."What are YOU doing for others"?
