Where do we go from here ~ Martin Luther King Jr.


As Americans nationwide observe Martin Luther King Jr's day as a holiday we remind everyone of the holiday's significance and challenge everyone to do some kind of community service for their fellow neighbors on MLK day.

Martin Luther King was all about non-violence, cooperation, coordination and equal opportunity for his dream was for people to be all they could be.  Dr. King believed that you don't just stand by and let the forces of separation and non-understanding come in between the greatness of what we could be. We could be as different as we want to be, but together we can be greater than what we expect.

Martin Luther King was born in Atlanta, Georgia, he was brought up in a religious home, and his father was a pastor. Dr. King followed in his dad’s footsteps and was ordained and became a minister of a Baptist church in the city Montgomery, Alabama. Montgomery was a place of great racism. Dr. King saw this racism and felt something needed to be done.

And with his intelligence, determination, and integrity he set goals for his people were of independence, desegregation, and to have their freedom.   Martin Luther's most inspirational speech was the “I Have a Dream” speech. This speech and these words touched so many people. It changed the way many people thought about African Americans. Those motivational words still ring till this day.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is a man that will never be forgotten. This is because of all the good things that he has done for all Americans.  

Dr. King showed, not to be afraid of anything, to stand up for your people/group, to stand up for the right of your people/group, and lastly to fight with nonviolence for your people. Knowing Dr. King  he would stand up if he or anyone he knew were faced with Eminent Domain that is in affiliation with Gentrification also known as discrimination these two evils are destroying our nation.  On this day of Observance stand up for your rights and contact your elected officials and say no to destroying the community known as Jubilee Park.
