On the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination I propose we each take a look at our past and what is going on in the world today. How far have we come to realizing the “Dream?” Racism, stereotypes, economic and social inequality are as present as our street corners. The war in Iraq still wages and race and gender are a central issue in the current presidential election. We have isolated ourselves in our homes, our friends, and our conversations. We say in response to these that we need a leader to facilitate change, an inspirational figure such as Rev. King, but the truth is, as Rev. King has always championed, it is up to us, the individual to come together and make change happen. On this day we are reminded not only of the sacrifice of Rev. King but his message that we should take responsibility for our own destiny and DO SOMETHING, talk to each other, learn something new, don’t believe everything you hear or see through the media, seek out new points of view, make a stand! I welcome comments, points of view, means to a new understanding. Thank you, and on this day PEACE to you.
