A Message From The King

It is important during these difficult times that we behold on to these inspiring words spoken by the late great Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The ethos of the body King touches my spirit, and these words should also touch your spirit too. As far as I’m concerned he was the most revered leader of our time.

Dr. King’s legacy was to secure progress through civil rights for the American Negro and poor people in the United States, and for this he has become a human rights icon recognized as a martyr. He has posthumous been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Congressional Gold Medal, a National Holiday, and honored with a monument on the Washington Mall in DC.

Although, his true story has been sanitized to where most view him as a dreamer. Whereby, this characterization of his legacy is not correct. Let us remember Dr. King as the revolutionary he was; he, like Moses, saw this country as the Egypt of our time. I would ask that you listen to “The King” in his own words. The attached video is, in my view, one of his most succinctly clearly spoken words concerning the American Myth. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
