This statement is especially true when On the surface it may seem as if Dr. King rose from obscurity to national prominence because of his I Have a Dream speech, delivered in the Kings life points to his intense struggle to live according to his sense of purpose. Dr. Kings legacy did not begin with his speech at the march on Washington, D.C. Rather, it began when he developed an awareness of injustices among marginalized people in the United States and abroad. It was this awareness that ignited Dr. Kings passion and compelled him to be a champion for freedom and liberty. All legacies, of course, have a medium by For Dr. King, his vehicle for accomplishing his quest for liberation was the dream. As a pastor of a baptist church and philosopher, King utilized biblical imagery to cast his own discrimination and inequality. He equated his vision with the new heaven and earth John wrote about while exiled on the island of Patmos. To balance his vision, Dr. King embraced an ethos of love that overcomes hatred and the most Mahatma Gandhis nonviolent strategy as a form of social resistance. Indeed, each step in Kings development is and cultivating a deeper awareness of injustice. To combat the injustices outlined by Dr. King in an all encompassing dream that highlighted the inspiring social change in America. Kings legacy for freedom and liberation is his dream for America. In Kings I Have a Dream speech, he noted that his dream is deeply rooted in the American dream. Therefore, Kings American dream. Said differently, it is a dream for America. Sure, many other orators have mentioned their dreams for America, but no one Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His love ethos and demand for freedom punctuated every sentence of his speeches. Monday, Jan. 17, is the national observance of Martin Luther King, Jr.s birthday. Communities and cities throughout the country will honor Dr. Kings legacy in a variety of ways. throughout the world to ensure every human being is guaranteed freedom and liberty from oppression. Dr. Kings dream embodies the tenets of what it means to be an American in the 21st Century. As we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther Kings mantle and live out that dream Dr. King saw for America. Keep his dream alive by being a champion for freedom and liberty. As long as injustice and inequality exists, we need the dream. And one day, I believe, we will accomplish Dr. Kings dream for America. Mind, Body & SoulAir Force Lt. Col. Marvin Williams JTF-GTMO Command Chaplain Martin Luther Kings Dream for America
