Fifty years ago today, Martin Luther King, leader of the civil rights movement, was killed in Memphis, Tennessee. He left us with a dream that all people be treated equal regardless of the color of their skin.
In those fifty years, a lot has happened. We have made some progress, but we are at risk of seeing all we have gained destroyed by a society that encourages hatred and promotes violence.
My dream is that someday we can all live in peace, that we can embrace, shelter, and feed the poor, and the stranger
As you reflect on Martin Luther King’s legacy, get in touch with your dreams. What do you want for your future, for the future of the world?
Touch the love in your heart and let it guide your thoughts and actions.
Let’s sing a hymn to peace and prosperity for all.
