An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Dr. King, I salute you, I honor you, I thank you for standing up up when others sat down. I thank you for being a man of integrity, justice, love, courage, humility and Godly character. Because of you, today many of us are able to D....R....E....A....M again!

Keep Your Dream Alive!

Your dreams are not far-fetched, they may only make sense to you. The people around you may not understand or even agree with you, because it's not their vision- so it's not for them to see. Look at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Maya Angelou, Tyler Perry, and many others. What do they all have in common? They all had a dream, kept it close to their hearts, ran with it, and didn't allow anything or anyone deter them from going after it. So friend, keep on dreaming and one day your dream will come to pass. ~ Neasha Clarke

The introduction by Archbishop Desmond Tutu prompted me to buy this book: The Words and Inspiration of Martin Luther King Jr. from Wild Dog Press.  I liked the idea of a South African commenting on the American experience.  We tend to isolate history, this is mine, that is yours when it is essentially a human experience. I like the book's fee.  It is a hard cover with a spine i haven't seen in a long time.

I enjoyed reading your blog Allison. I was part of a committee in Evanston, Illinois that planned some events for our town. It brought back memories to me of participating in the Civil Rights Movement and I blogged about it on http://recipesforabetterworld.blogspot.com

Your blog title was catching Allison and the words were so appropriate. Great blog.

From a post I wrote yesterday, all the things I don't want to teach my children about Dr. King, http://northsidefour.blogspot.com/2011/01/new-history.html, and all the things I know that I should.

"Hi Sara, Seems like the traffic dropped off the map on this group again. Did that 2.0 group ever get going? I believe I "joined" it, but haven't heard anything from anyone in so long, I'm thinking it faded away."
