Spite, hatred and intolerance ceased his body from living, but those things did not end his spirit (as the spirit surpasses the body and lives on) and those things did not end his vision (things have improved and society still fights on). Hatred and evil: you are one big FAIL.
Today is the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assasination.
Dr. King, Jr. fought a peaceful and firm fight. God was his ultimate inspiration and motivation. The vast and great efforts of the civil rights leader Dr. King and those like him have greatly improved the lives and situations of African-Americans, workers/employees/unions, the disenfranchised/poverty-stricken and he was also an anti-war figure. Thanks to their work, which was by no means easy, racism is no longer ignorable and tolerable. Workers and unions are treated more fairly. Due to such efforts, I, an African-American, attended college, graduated with my rightful grades, can get jobs I qualify for regardless of my race and can enjoy simple freedoms like riding a bus, using a public toilet (though those can be kinda gross at times, ha!), go to the beach without being kicked out or cursed at and so much more. The fight has changed people’s hearts and minds. There is still more work to do, of course, but with the right spirit and intentions, things will continue to get better. As long as something is in-line with God and His Word, then it should be a human right. Their work was not easy by far and carried the risk of danger and retaliation against them and their families, but yet they fought on with FAITH and for the HOPE that society can be at more peace and have more justice. Thank you, Father God, for moving these soldiers to fight on and thank You for the changes You have made. Thank you, soldiers of rights and fairness for risking your comforts to fight for right. We should NEVER take for granted what they did. Amen.
