    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    Dr King was not a saint. He was a sinner, said so many times. I didn't agree with the holiday since the Postal Service already takes off 160 days a year and eventually they'll run out of days. Haven't heard a truth ring out like he used dream of for quite some time... and inspiration? Our other brightest and best have been telling us to hide under a desk since the 50s.

    Need a vision to imagine, need a route for that vision to make it a story. The story is about the message, not Jonah or his pet whale. This holiday doesn't give good service to the intent.

    King's speech includes the line "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.
    I am neither for nor against the holiday. However, when it comes to potent and compelling words that have been wasted on the world it would be the above.
    Trojan 42 and Captain America like this.
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

    We are who we choose to be.
