making dreams reality

in remembrance and gratitude

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.
Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929-April 4,1968)
minister, civil rights leader, 1964 Nobel Peace Prize recipient

Amen to that! Brilliant quote and so true - how can we possibly forget out interconnectedness.

What I often admire about Dr. King besides all his tireless efforts, were his amazing writings and quotes. He did say some pretty remarkable things.

Hey this is oh so perfect for me speach I am preparing for class on guaranteed annual income. Now lately I have been seeing the wise Martin everywhere...documentaries, quotes,and I wondered why? Then I saw his date of birth!

It will be one date that I celebrate from now on!

I love that quote.
We are all in this together.
To be successful as a society,
we have to be inclusive, where all have a voice and are heard.

MLK is one of my heroes. I remember the day he was killed. It's one of the only times I ever saw my mother cry. She was so optimistic, such an idealist, but that day she was ready to give up.

Glad to have him as a member of the Mighty Dead. He was truly great.

I think Martin Luther King was one of the greatest enlightened individuals of our time.
