Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.



Please take the time today to reflect on the words of Dr. King - rejoice in the advances he helped foster - and remember that it was the rights and freedoms that our Constitution guarantees that allowed his dream to, in many respects, become reality. That is why it is crucial for us to hold on to the ideals and intentions of our Founding documents. We must not allow ourselves to be marched into tyranny out of fear of our enemies. Dr. King knew that full well.

Dr. King was an American patriot who lived and died promoting Peace, Freedom and Civil Liberties. Dr. King practiced Libertarian principles of civil disobedience with non-violence. He worked to make sure that all people are treated fairly.


Some quotes from Dr. King:
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. "

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

"Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal."
