More than just a day to remember


It's really easy to breeze by today as another holiday on the calendar. Another day that gets us off work. We might give a passing thought to the man this day is about but that is usually about it.

Martin Luther King Jr. stood for equality, peace, love, and justice. It would be easy and convenient to look back on where we have come from since the time of segregation and think injustice is a thing of the past. 

However, I have a hard the believing that if Mr. King were alive today he would be sitting back in his rocker thinking that his work is done.

In a world that has more slaves today than ever (27million apron.), where gendercide is the cause of death for far too many girls, and children are being forced to become child soldiers we are far from done fighting the fight.  Injustice still remains and we are left to carry on the legacy or breaks it's chains. 

Now is certainly not the time to be silent.
