“The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“‘On August 28, 1963, some 100 years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves, a young man named Martin Luther King climbed the marble steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC to describe his vision of America.’
‘More than 200,000 people-black and white-came to listen. They came by plane, by car, by bus, by train, and by foot. They came to Washington to demand equal rights for black people. And the dream that they heard on the steps of the Monument became the dream of a generation.'”
Dr. King is nationally honored and recognized. However, honor is also due to many people of different races that worked and died for civil rights. Today, along with Dr. King, I honor/recognize the unrecognizable warriors for equality. “Give everyone what you own them. “If respect, then respect; if honor, then honor” (Romans 13:7).
“We must walk on in the days ahead with an audacious faith in the future.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
God, too, had a dream for His children. His dream was for a perfect world. Sadly, that did not come to fruition due to man’s disobedience and introduction of sin into the world. But the One Living God had a plan to save our souls if we choose to walk according to His Plan of Salvation.
Today, and every second we are blessed with life, we must remember to recognize and honor the King of kings, the Lord of lords and His Son for freeing everyone from the bondage of sins through His blood.
If we want to make the prepared place for prepared people our eternal home, let us be prepared. — Tangie T. Woods
