Exactly 50 years have passed by since Reverent Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the staircases leading to the Lincoln memorial before 250000 Americans to deliver his immortal sermon known to the entire humanity as “I Have A Dream”.. Here are a few excerpts I chose to express how actual his speech seem today.
“We refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice”.
“It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in this nation until equal citizenship rights are granted”.
“This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children”.
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal’."
Two Luther (s) have carved their posts in history mobilising strong Cultural Protests that soon after triggered overwhelming Social Revolutions, though in different ways..
One German priest who decided to review the Catholic doctrine’s inconsistencies with the early teachings of Jesus, thus establishing a Protestant Movement later on becoming a doctrine thriving towards knowledge and competition..
The other an illuminated Afro-American reverent and devoted human rights activists who worked his way into the doctrine to extract the modern needs and hopes of the mashed masses in order to peacefully restore their civil rights.
Two men did what the Muslim Brotherhood mighty international structure is still unable to do since more than 80 years.. Two men changed the western thought just by following exactly the paths of earlier Muslim philosophers and scientists, whom enlightened and widened human knowledge long before the European tribes reached out from their caverns.
They all knew for certain that the key to power, progress, security and evolution is knowing not fighting.
Pass On The Word.
