Today is the birthday of probably one of the most influential people and most progressive I have ever heard of…
Martin Luther King Jr isn’t just well-known for is words in America, but his influence around the world.
I feel sad today because after he helped so much with Civil Rights, I think he would be so disheartened to see who America has in charge, and his supporters. The words that has come out of that mans and his supporters mouths and what they have written. Although I do hope that he would get the people to march again! I feel like that’s what we are lacking in this situation.
Martin Luther King to me has true power. Had true words….Was just true…
Did you know: This year it will be 50 years since he was murdered…How far do you think we’ve really come?
Let the name of Martin Luther King Jr and his words trend today!
*Update…I can’t believe I schedule this on the wrong day! 28th of August 1963*
If anyone knows what the time was when he delivered his speech, can you please let me know?
I just felt like this was an appropriate speech to post, with all the misery and family coming together for various different reasons over a holiday like Thanksgiving. Family coming together vs The Native Americans being wiped out by the invaders.
Sometimes I think I just think differently from other people, kind of like I was born in the wrong era, or the wrong “reality”. Honestly it hurts my spirit, and I use term since I was called a racist for not agreeing that my spirit is less spirtual than some others. “White people sucked out all the spirit”…That is not even how spirit works. I said to this individual though “That’s your Ego talking, NOT your Spirit”… That was definietly a trigger for me. I work with Spirit a lot, I do Reiki, Tarot … Witch craft some may call it! You leave my spirit alone, I’ll leave yours alone.
It was annoying because I was saying that it’s even more important to stand for matters like BLM, to start really educating ourselves on our histories. Stand with Standing Rock, for example. Just recently I found out that Gandhi had slept with younger girls to “test himself”, who knows for sure!…Which I think he ‘passed’ but that clearly is not the issue. How can someone ever learn if they…well…never learn? If they and you are never listened too? Nothing moves forward, nothing progresses. We get stuck in the same fight, the same circles. Sometimes I do few a lot of the fights as frivolous, especially on Instagram, and they never get anywhere. Which information is even correct? So now I don’t argue on Instagram or Facebook anymore.
The reason I’m posting this video and a link to the Speech in written form though? This video soothes my mind, it is exactly what I am trying to say. Martin Luther King is a hero of mine…I feel like we need more people/leaders/great minds like Martin Luther King. He believed we should ALL work together. We ALL need each other. I still, and probably will always, think his assassination is one of the greatest tragedies of our time. It’s nice to know someone out there existed as I think as well.
I am a dreamer, I know that, I can be extremely naive. Possibly even too idealistic. If you could have any dream you wanted to come true though, what would it be?
