King’s Mountain Tops Speech remains relevant today

On April 3, 1968 Martin Luther King delivered his powerful, “I’ve been to the mountain top speech” the day before he was assassinated. We have to remain true to what we say on paper. We still 43 years later are still having difficult days ahead, racial divide continues to be exacerbated by those who continue to want to create strife and division in America. We are Americans, regardless of the color of our skin or party affiliation.
Our first amendment rights are continued to be infringed upon, the media now has usurped our rights to have fair and unbalanced reporting of the news. Our rights to assemble are now making us possible victims of the hatred that is growing in our nation. Our freedom of speech and our rights to protest now subject us to being killed, maimed in the streets by crazed zealots.
The mountain top appears to be getting closer for us all, as civility is no longer prevalent in our society today.

Our life begins to end when we remain silent on things that matter

  3. Martin Luther King. What a great man! His ideas were reflected in the heritage of our Republic’s founding. Equally created & equally protected under the law. But racial divide continues & will con’t w/ the likes of race pimps Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson fueling the fires of racial tensions. But they have to or they’d be out of a job. The so called civil rights leaders of today are not even worthy of (paraphrasing Bill Clinton) getting Dr. King’s coffee. Nice post Erica!

  5. Another great post. We need to stand strong for our rights to speak out for what we believe. And not let others try and frighten us into staying quiet.
