Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr visited the Gandhi family in India in 1959, and he went on to dedicate himself to the principles of non-violence

On August 28, 1963, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, he delivered one of the greatest speeches of the 20th century to over two hundred and fifty thousand civil rights supporters;

"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."

Honoring a Great Man for his Great Vision!

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."

Freedom from oppression and tyranny are the catch cry of revolutionaries fighting for the rights of minorities. I was marching 40 years ago in rallies against war (Vietnam) I saw some small progress but overall the power brokers continue to oppress people all over the world. I decided to start a movement of my own in 2002 and I have just published a item here

Dear Peace for the soul,

Very lucky and selected people can get justice but I have seen the truthful people always suffer and they get justice after they leave their Bodies...

Comment by Eva on August 6, 2014 at 5:19pm

Welcome dear Sohiniben!

But we need justice, because Peace without justice is an impossibility....

Dear Peace For The Soul,

This man was shot dead and why ? 

When I know that I felt very bad about the people who do not appreciate and that's why I hate politics....

Welcome Stephen, Desmond and all...,  who share this dream...,

until today...

Comment by Stephen Quinto on August 25, 2013 at 12:09pm

How could I not come here to honor him?  Our fallen brother's voice still rings out in a timeless truth..... "I have a dream...." 

We, too must share our most noble dreams ....for they belong first to others ....and only then for ourselves.
