MLK and Serving

MLK will forever be linked to on phrase “I have a dream”. As speeches go, it has to be one of the all time greatest. the main phrases that many people remember are the following …

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor’s lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

Well … our youth had a small dream to day and did something about it. We served those who were less fortunate then us by serving in at a mission warehouse. Portland Mission to be exact. With gloves on hands and a spirit to serve, we dived into the task. At the end of the day, with several palets of food sorted into their rightful places, we felt a little bit better.

The dream of serving lives on.

Have a great day.
