Woodbury, Minn. (January 17, 2011) – Today, through out the nation, many are gathering in honor of the life and dream of Dr. King. Speeches will be made in recognition of the accomplishments that have been made. Many will assemble in honor of themselves for being in the position of respectability that they are in, due to the success of the Dr’s efforts. But what would the Dr. say, if he were present today?
Somewhere in his history he stated he did not want such celebrations as these that are honoring him today, but rather, let it be known that he tried to help somebody. No doubt in my mind, to accomplish that would mean imitating his passion and action for that which they claim mean so much.
No doubt if Dr. King was here today, he would draw our attention to the fact that the US House of Representatives have committed to repeal a health care bill that does not go far enough, in providing the service that all individuals need, yet, nevertheless a move in the right direction. Dr. King has said with his life that it is the duty and responsibility of individual citizens and collectively to demand that health care, an inalienable right, be granted to all in need and that the lack of money serve as a reason to be denied. His action dictates that nothing should prevent standing up for that which is right, if one desires it; not even death.
Many Americans, understand that we live under a system, where death is almost guaranteed to those that will not bend to the rules of the status quo. Remember, this is the opportunity that each one will be given to express their relationship with God, for only a true relationship with God enables one to boldly face death for that which is right. Though many will face death under the power of fear, it will not be a bold act.
Let us understand that many citizens and politicians have no relationship with God other than the Constitution and must be taught by the actions, non-violent, of those that know God. Which are you?
