Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. faced many oppositions to his goal of civil rights for all. Folks on each side of the issue criticized and attacked his work.

He relentlessly pushed forward, despite the opposition. One who opposed him eventually killed him. Yet his dream did not die.

His work laid the foundation for which we must continue to work towards. Equal right for everyone…the immigrant, a person of color, the one with no home, one stricken by mental illness, the individual dealing with addiction.

We are labeled by only one thing…children of God, created in His image.

May we continue the dream…founded on the work of the cross.

– Jay
