Martin Luther King Day: January 20th 2014


mlk_1929-1968Today is Martin Luther King Day and I have a few quotes that people have forgotten and need to be applied today:


  • Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. … I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

  • I have a dream that my four little 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.

  • We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

  • The function of education is to teach one to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.

  • History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.

  • I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality … I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

  • We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.bar_goldcable





no_bias-bigotry-hateRonald Reagan Anniversary and LegacyOur youth requires character building, not government mandated socialism and political correctness. Parents are important in child rearing. The liberal-progressives have promoted and an unlimited government has created a social condition where marriage is no longer held in esteem, only useful when reporting income tax and children do not have the nurturing and discipline they require to become responsible citizens and productive adults.
