A day late, but never too late for this message. While Martin Luther King, Jr. was a person of color, his message of love and peace and respect is of course universal and has nothing to do with skin color. On MLK day we celebrate his courage in the face of adversity, his vision to communicate peacefully in a world fraught with adversity and strife, his vision for harmony and kindness on Earth, and for showing us a better way, - a dream still, but let's keep dreaming.
Let's embrace his message in our own backyard - in our families, among our friends, at work, at school. When I can see myself in all other fellow men, in any fellow man or woman, when I can see that they all have the same needs for safety, a roof over their head, a good job, healthful food, dignity and respect, as I do, that they all have the same fears I do, and the same need for love and acceptance, skin color is no longer the issue. When we become peaceful internally we will become peaceful externally. Let's all remember his dream and make it our's - it's a universal dream.
