They are among the most poignant words spoken during America’s 20th Century.
And now, decades later in 2020, those words and their message appears lost under the roiling rubble of media manipulations and a society burdened by the weight of its own alarming ignorance and willingness to act out of anger far more often than consideration and self-reflection.
Martin Luther King Jr. spoke so often of personal responsibility joining with collective purpose for a greater good.
Today his voice, his wisdom, his hope for both his race and all of humanity is being drowned out by the violent noise of mob rule.
What a terrible thing to see a man so worthy of understanding being relegated to a forgotten relic in these divisive times which are so clearly unworthy of his memory.
May American find its way back soon to this message of unity Dr. King so earnestly wanted to see realized.
