The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a man of compassion and dedication. He reminded us all that “human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability,” and that “the time is always ripe to do right.” He told us that we are all created equal, endowed with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We should all be committed to honoring Dr. King’s legacy. That means recognizing the human dignity in everyone. It means protecting the right to vote. It means ensuring that everyone is "not judged on the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
As we remember Dr. King on his birthday, let us remember his legacy that still lives on, and the challenge that remains.
