Meditations on MLK Day

Martin Luther King Day is a day that encourages reflection. Especially for a guy who grew up in the south, time needs to be made on this Monday to listen again to Dr. King’s aspirations in his “I Have A Dream” speech and compare his dream to our reality.

As with most human things, we’re a little better in some ways (we have elected an African American president) and a little worse in others (there are still too many Eric Garners).
