I wanted to write about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today, and this quote from his "I Have a Dream" speech that I saw on Lynn's blog just grabbed me:
You only need a heart full of grace, a soul
generated by love...
Wouldn't it be great if we all had that?
A friend of mine is getting married. Her future in-laws are a bit hoity toity and we all said, "Hey, at least you're not getting married at the country club!" One of her friends, who is African-American, joked that she wouldn't be able to get in...and another friend joked that with my Jewish and Apache roots, I wouldn't, either.
But imagine if that was your reality? Less than fifty years ago, it would have been my reality.
Racial segregation may be over in the U.S., but sexism and homophobia are the sad reality in many parts of our country and the world.
What are you doing to help change that?
