The legacy of Dr. King is a legacy of speaking truth in love, peacefully pursuing justice, and standing for what is right. On this day each year, our nation honors him. But do you realize how relevant his life, ministry and activism is to today? Consider:
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
“Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
“Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”
“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
“You can kill the dreamer, but you can’t kill the dream.”
"Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice."
“Right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.”
Consider the words of Dr. King as you prepare to govern the nation this week.
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
Remember Your Oath.
