    MLK: Celebrating Freedom, Equality, Diversity

     

    This wekend we step back to remember the life of Martin Luther King, born Michael King, he changed his name when his father changed his name to Martin Luther King in honor of Protestant Reformer, Martin Luther. This day we celebrate the freedom and equality we all want and deserve, and the diversity that truly makes us American. Monday we celebrate with marches and speeches, one of the largest, if not the largest march of which is in San Antonio, TX. Now that minorities have more equality, but still need progress, we need to remember Dr. MLK, Jr's words that we are all judged by the content of our character minorities should be blessed and not put Caucasians down. That in fact is "reverse discrimination" and not what Dr. King stood for.

     

    I love King's quote about not to judge based on the color of our skin, but the content of our character.  We all need to remember that.  The President Barack Obama needs to remember that - sad he feels it's his race that is leading to his low approval rating when in fact we all knew the color of his skin 6-7 years ago, it's your character Mr. President we are saddened to see fall.  Illegal immigrants of any skin tone (Hispanic, Arabic, European, Asian, etc. ) also need to reflect on their character content when they come to the USA illegally.  I'm sure there are many other examples, these are just two.  God bless us all.
