Since we are on a theme of bullying, homophobia, racism and human rights this week, coincidentally on this day, August 28th, 50 years ago the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. marched in Washington and gave his memorable speech, “I have a Dream!”. I’ve included the Youtube video of his speech.
This morning, The Montreal Gazette reported over 100 churches were ringing their bells in honour of the famous Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.. MLK; I wonder what the Reverend King would have to say about America’s current president. Society is slowly changing, I hope in regards to racism as well as any type of intolerance. A brilliant blogger and writer/poet read an interesting sentence to me yesterday, nokindofmagic “Maturity and strength of society is best found in the way it treats minorities.”
Wouldn’t it be great that this would be a sign of a mature society and that we would also “embrace” our differences!. Namaste
