Keep “The Dream” alive. Let’s make MLK’s vision a reality, like he passionately spoke about 50 years ago today for America. Our United States of America need to be truly united. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Reverend, remember. I believe “One Nation Under God” should continue to be our motto that we adhere to.
Please read here a message from Rev. E.W. Jackson, candidate for Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor.
Fifty years ago today, Rev. Martin Luther King shared his dream with the world. It was not a black dream or white dream, but an “American Dream.” The central theme was that the day would come when we would not be judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character.
He was a great leader addressing a real and pressing problem. He was, in a sense, liberating all of us from the shackles of our past and leading us into a new era of the American experience. Change is not easy, and it was necessarily a time of division and tension as our country grappled with the full import of our Declaration and Constitution.
It is my hope that as we remember Dr. King’s historic speech we will reject those who are committed to manufacturing tension and keeping the division alive. Let us embrace a new generation of leaders dedicated to fostering unity and keeping the dream alive as one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
For God and country,
