In Remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day

May each of the readers of Aloha Promises Forever have a blessed day of service and communion on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 20, 2020.  May we always join together with such clarity!

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’ … I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. … And if America is to be a great nation this must become true.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

“I have a dream that my children will one day be judged by the color of their skin, not the content of their character.”  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Democratic Party has become a party of hate and division based on the very things that Dr. King spoke out against.  This world we live in must never be allowed to be a place of skin against skin but instead one of inclusion in.  This inclusion must be based on meritorious conduct, striving to achieve, to act with our greatest character in love and for the betterment of ourselves surely, but, never to achieve more by treating others as deserving of less.  Think on this in our coming election and realize that lies do not create a better truth by which our children and their children should live.

 

Can I get an amen out there? … please?
