MLK day.

sorry for the delay in posting people, been real busy with work and school work.
i have some time for a quick post today so here i am!

did you miss me? ;]

i feel like such a mess lately, haven't had much time for any upkeep of myself. i truly need a vacation and this free time that i have today i welcome with my arms wide open.

its Martin Luther King day...i would like to take this time to honor the memory of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his efforts on the equal rights movement. it was through your selflessness and sacrifice that we have made great strides on this front.

so i propose to you all; no matter your color, race, ethnicity, and different backgrounds for you to just stop with the prejudice. we are supposed to be civilized individuals, we are living in the 21st century now...why can't we all just get along? let's behave as we should, we are all equal! don't let anyone else make you believe otherwise.

i would like to leave you with an excerpt of Dr. King's famed speech:

"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...I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character...I have a dream today."

(for the full speech and background of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. check this link below)

i too share this dream with the late reverend, will it ever come to fruition? that's entirely up to all of you to make this happen.
