The Dream

A thought for today ...

They said one to another,
Behold. Here cometh the dreamer ...

Let us slay him.

And we shall see what becomes of his dreams.

-- Genesis 37:19-20
Tombstone inscription,
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, we mark the birthday of a national hero and icon for the centuries. Let us dwell on the Dream of Dr. King. Let us remember what his life meant, and how his legacy has affected our generation. Let his message of nonviolence permiate our thoughts and modify our actions.

Recall, if you will, when Dr. King's wife, Coretta, passed away.

Four presidents, including George W. Bush, attended her funal. It was marked as a national day of mourning.

The most notable speech given that day was by the Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery, who served with Dr. King during the old civil rights movement.

Dr. Lowery stood before the most powerful men in the world and channeled the spirit of Dr. King, speaking these immortal words ...

"We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. But Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here. Millions without health insurance. Poverty abounds. For war, billions more, but no more for the poor!"

Watch it:

And never forget. The Dream is not dead.

The Dream will never die.
