Martin Luther King ~ I Have a Dream

Posted by Abrra on Monday, January 19, 2015

martin-luther-king-jr-achievements-5

Today in the USA we honor a fallen leader, Martin Luther King Jr. He was a leader not in the political (elected) sense, but in the spirit of humanity. Here is his “I Have A Dream” speech given at the March on Washington August 28, 1963. As many of us here grew up seeing these scenes of protesting crowds on the nightly news, we knew change for the better was on the horizon. We’re not there just yet, but the dream still lives.

    Yes, Abrra, the dream still lives. We can get there.

    I’ve been reading some of the comments on David’s OS that are responding to his blog. The love and concern in these comments is awesome! David’s fans are not just a bunch of air-headed, teeny-bopper, screamers and yellers that are going to pass out when they see him. He’s got an amazing following of fans that are real, down-to-earth types of people. His needs are cared about. I hope he is feeling the love and concern. And, I hope he is ready to get down to business and let the inspiration come that will bring him, and us, the happiness that we are all looking for. 🙂

    Abrra, I remember seeing this as a child and it left a huge impression on me. I’ve watched the memorials, movies, documentaries, and whatever special they have in any particular year and it still seems unbelievable to me. Thanks for reminding us this today.

    I believe the “dream” lives and the likes of David, his music, his faith resonate with this dream. His singing Imagine, and many of the songs he sang on AI with a message struck a nerve with me and sure took me out of my comfort zone. I’m one of the ones that love Dream Sky High. Co-written by David at since a young age and was already dreaming big. I’m so glad he’s continuing his musical journey. Just maybe more will catch fire and make King’s dream come true, hopefully in my lifetime.

    Tawna, I just read the most recent comments on David’s OS and yes what an outpouring of love and support. It’s impressive. This from someone in the Motab Choir when David was the guest. The “reluctant celebrity”.

    I just love your openness, honesty, and vulnerability in this post, and I can so relate to the feelings you expressed. Way to embrace just being YOU. Ironically, I think that’s what brings the attention you’re not even seeking… we all just love you for your humility and sincerity! I was a young newbie in MoTab when you were the guest artist at our Christmas concert, and you won over the whole choir just by being yourself. Keep it up. 🙂

    Dja #3 – that is the comment that rang so true in my head this morning…. He’s not seeking for attention, but he gets it because he is the way he is…. just David. ♥

    Abrra, thanks for the post honoring a great man. I never was or could be racial. When my husband was a reservist in 1961 and was drafted the 2nd time, we were stationed at Fort McClellan in Alabama. I remember where the whites and the colored had different drinking fountains and bathrooms. And yes they had to go to the back of the bus. But yet, it wasn’t anything to see a colored lady taking care of a white child. We, being from Kansas, just didn’t understand that if a person is good enough to take care of your child, why couldn’t they live the same way you do? But, now, the way things are, some things are worse in different ways. I am not racial, but I know right from wrong.

    Tawna and Dja, I seen that too and it is so true. The thing is, I think most people knew how he is, that is what drew them to him along with that fabulous voice. Between the two, we are goners! 🙂 It is awesome that there are so many supporters for our dear David. #howcouldtheynotbe Maybe so many know and understand is because so many are introverts too.{?} I also think that now that David has gotten this off his chest, maybe he will be even more free and his music should be even more awesome! #ithinkitwillbe

    Thanks , ladies for taking the time to read and listen to MKL, Jr. today. It’s a powerful message that was heard loud and clear when he spoke the words. I lived in the south as a small child and I too recall the segregation. I never understood why some of the adults around me had so much fear and hate in their words when speaking of blacks. I wasn’t exposed to this behavior in my home, but saw it’s effects when out in the community.

    This part of the speech has always stayed with me:

    “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. ”

    Thanks for mentioning the post on David’s OS from the MOTAB newbie. I just can’t wade through all the comments over there. haha

    Thanks, Bluesky. It has become a fun thing with me. I never before had paid any attention to them. Then one time I wanted to add some thoughts and lo and behold…. 🙂 It’s kind of letting me add last thoughts that I have after I have commented. My mind seems to never quit, that’s why I have a hard time going to sleep. It rambles something fierce, so the hashtags really come in handy for me when I comment. 🙂

    Abrra, that is my favorite part of the speech too, since I had 4 little children. No one in my family judges anyone since it is very multicultured. There are Indians {from India}, Mexicans, Spanish, Philipinos and black. Not all in my immediate family, some are in my extended family….but we are all one big, happy family! 🙂

    Forgot to mention that I automatically get the comments from Davids OS in my emails. Didn’t used to, but I must have hit a button where I do now! 🙂 It was super busy a week ago, but now they are dribbling in. At least I get to read them and there are a lot of good ones.

    Abrra,
    Thanks for this tribute to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fight for injustices, freedom, equality and dignity of all races. Most of all, a time to remember his message of change through nonviolence. I have always loved his “I Have A Dream” speech.

    dja,

    This quote you brought over from David’s OS about the newbie at MoTab when David was the guest singer rang true:

    “…Ironically, I think that’s what brings the attention you’re not even seeking… we all just love you for your humility and sincerity!…”

    He doesn’t have to do anything and he’s still the center of attention!

    I notice that there is another post up, so I don’t know if anyone will see this or not. I watched a program on PBS tonight of Robert F. Kennedy giving what was supposed to be a campaign speech in Indianapolis, but it was the night MLK was killed. The crowd waiting to hear Kennedy didn’t know of the tragedy and he had to tell them. He then gave one of the greatest speeches ever given in such a grave time in our country. Here is a link to the story, if anyone would like to read about it and read the speech:

    God rest Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy.
