Revealing Dr. King’s Dream Part 2
“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.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous, “I Have A Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963.
Nearly 50 years later, his words continue to reverberate through the halls of history. It would not take any stretch of the imagination to see how his words very would could be the most famous words spoken in modern American history.
Sadly, if the layers of current “reality” are peeled back, one could see that Dr. King’s words have been used and manipulated to do the exact opposite of what his dream was back then.
The question must be asked:
Has Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream turned into a nightmare for the very people he stood up for, and in fact, gave his very life for?
If one truly believes the words that Dr. King dreamed of, you have to look beyond the political manipulation that has allowed his dream to become a nightmare.
The funny thing about truth- it is or it is not. There is not middle ground. One must accept that something is or it is not, otherwise, you are left with nothing but hot air. Unfortunately, so much of what is spoken and written today and delivered as “facts”- the truth– is not truth at all.
The Dream has morphed into something that is not recognizable at this current time in history. It is no longer about the dream of a father, who longs for his children to live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.
We now live in a society where the norm is self above all else. This attitude is not contained to one race, creed, religion, gender or any other label, class or group of people we have been “divided” into by bureaucracy and political correctness.
To get to the truth- the real truth– one must get down to the very basics. Start at the very beginning, by asking themselves:
Do I- me, personally, desire to live in a nation where I- me, personally, will not be judged by the color of my skin, but the content of my character?
Once the answer to this question is determined, then, and only then, can one move beyond themselves, and ask the next vital question:
Do I- me, personally, desire to live in a nation where my children, my grandchildren, my parents, my siblings, and my friends, will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character?
Once the answer to this question is determined, then one can move on to the next step, and ask themselves:
Do I- me, personally, desire to live in a nation where every single individual that breathes air into their lungs, will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character?
Depending on how each individual person answers these three questions determines whether or not they truly believe in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream. If the answer- truthfully, without allowing the media, politicians, political correctness, agendas or any other outside influence to answer for the individual is yes to all three of the above questions, the final question one can truthfully say that yes, they truly believe in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream.
If the answer to any of the previous three questions is no, then the individual cannot say they believe in the same dream as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Truth is truth. It cannot be spun for a political agenda. It is either truth, or it is not.
Do you personally believe in the same dream as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
Or do you allow outside influences to tell you what he “really intended” in his dream?
