Martin Luther King

What would the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. think of America today?
‘Even if we never see his like again, while he lived, his deeds spoke for themselves and remain to this day, testimony to the place he occupied in the hearts and minds of people, black and white, urban and rural, young and old.’

~ ‘I Have A Dream’ ~ ‘that there Is someone out there without preset agendas, with an ability to listen as well as talk. Someone who can clear their throat in speaking the TRUTH with conviction and yet with humility about life in these United States of America. Someone who can convey a message that resonates with the proud moments of our past while pointing to a future of promise. Someone who ‘makes’ the Office of the Presidency – instead of it ‘making’ them.’

‘We need a voice like that–clear, visionary, compelling, gentle, prayerful, and trustworthy. I yearn for such a voice, not as a wistful hope – but as an urgent necessity.’
