"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.”
Are you a trumpet of conscience?
Nearly 50 years ago at the March on Washington, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. implored the nation to imagine a world where individuals would have the opportunity to define themselves through their individual talents and abilities rather than be categorized based upon external characteristics or assumptions. A common refrain throughout Dr. King’s teachings, speeches and writings is that the potential for a more just and respectful society can be realized only if we can think of ourselves and others collectively as human beings first and foremost. Today, we continue to struggle toward a society where individuals are comfortable being and expressing themselves.
