In some ways, the dream of Martin Luther King Jr. seems more distant than ever these days. There is so much racism, hatred, anger, and towards the end of his life, he also was a big proponent of fair wages and medical care for all--something that also remains weirdly controversial as many protest creating a liveable minimum wage. Marting Luther King Jr. was born on January 15th, 1929. The National Holiday in his honor always falls upon the third Monday of January every year.
In the year 2021, within America, things are a mess politically, socially, spiritually--you name it, things are bad. That does not mean we should stop believing in a beautiful future of unity and love, it simply is more and more apparent we will have to work for it with all our might.
