It is Martin Luther King Day today, which leads us to think of equality – between genders, people of different skin colors, different sexual orientation and everything else that makes us seem different from each other. These differences are not a measure of someone’s worth, we all have a right to be here, to live, work, marry, have children and families and be treated with respect. Thankfully, we’ve come a long way from segregation but today let us make a conscious decision to throw away the lens of all prejudice against people that are different from us and treat everyone with respect. Together we can change the world!
In honor of Martin Luther King Day, here’s a part of his great I Have A Dream speech.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
