In Dr. King’s Own Words

3On this great day, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday is wonderfully inspiring to behold. The ethos of the body King touches my spirit each January during the celebration of his day. As far as I’m concerned he was the most revered leader of our time.
Dr. King's legacy was to secure progress of civil rights for the American Negro and poor people in the United States, and for this reason he has become a human rights icon recognized as a martyr. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Congressional Gold Medal, a National Holiday, and will be 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. This characterization of his 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.
HAPPY KING DAY! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
