Martin Luther King believed that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. Indeed, we could say that injust us, anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere. So, in just us, anywhere, is a hope for justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King had a dream that fairness and equality would be there for us all. Those who think otherwise, still need to realise that all men and women are created equal.
Martin Luther King wanted to let freedom ring in all parts of America. For some, it seems that this has not happened: they may not be in chains, but still feel that they are in bondage. For them, we need to let free them reins. Let freedom reign!
The world is not over it: oppression and unfairness still exist, not just in the United States, but in almost any country you care to consider. They exist not just because of colour or race or gender, or because of other accidental circumstances. They have become ingrained in systems and structures and will be hard to break. We should never be content to think or say that things are not as bad as they were. That would open the door too easily to things going back to where they were. Work to make things better.
