MLK-Day| from Takei Inspirations™

Martin-Luther-King-Jr-

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

There is so much wisdom and truth within these 12 words!  I know I speak on the power of love quite often,  that's because within love lies the power to overcome any and everything!  MLK showed a love for all mankind regardless of differences in ethnicity, race, religious beliefs, or gender. He fought for equal rights of African Americans and all minorities.

This is a day to remember a giant of our Nation's history and a pioneer of the Civil Rights Movement. During his lifelong struggle for justice and equality, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave strong voice to the silent hopes of millions, offered a redemptive path for oppressed and oppressors alike, and led a Nation to the mountaintop!  We should also keep in mind that our journey is not yet complete.   We have an obligation to build on the success of past generations.  It is up to us to ensure that the justice system works equally for all people. We must work on  creating equality in the dignity of good jobs, decent wages, and quality of education.  I encourage each of you to do your part as we continually move closer to the nation that Dr. King spoke about in his I have a dream speech.
