"The Dream Continues"

"I have a Dream." Never have four words had such a lasting impact not only on the legacy of an individual, but on the entire movement it was based upon. As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we must truly engage ourselves into what Dr. King was to fully appreciate what he stood for and the type of person he was. He was a very complex individual with high hopes for our nation and had a will that nobody could even break. But, like everybody throughout the world, he also had some personal issues to deal with. He encountered tremendous obstacles that most people would succumb to, but he stood in the face of adversity and decided to fight these challenges through pacifist mannerisms. It seems that people who remember him today forget that he not only fought for civil rights, but he also fought for a lot of other items such as eliminating poverty in the inner cities and finding other solutions to resolve conflicts than resorting to war. So, today as we all sit back and reflect and honor his legacy, just reminder yourself that the same conflicts faced so many years ago (while new challenges have presented themselves) still exist in the world today and that he would want for all people, no matter race, size, gender, or age, to continue on in the push for equality and harmony amongst people in the world. Only then, can we truly come together as nation and stand, joined hand and hand, on a hilltop and say:

"Free at last, Free at last, THANK GOD ALMIGHTY WE ARE FREE AT LAST."

So, peace to the nation, the people that represent, and those cats that never bug out to the extreme

Yo, If word is bond
then Q is gone
