Martin Luther King Jr. Celebrating the Dream

01-15-29 --- 04-04-68

Today is the governmental observed day for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  King's actual birthday was on Saturday, January 15, 2011.  B.M.M.O. Consulting would like to take time out and acknowledge Martin Luther King Jr. and his numerous contributions to the freedoms that we are all privileged to have today.  Below we will share some quotes that B.M.M.O. Consulting feel inspired by and feel are still relevant to now.

A man who won't die for something is not fit to live ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
We as a people have to be willing to stand up to the injustices of the world and be willing to help one another.  While individually we can do nothing, but collectively if we come together we can change a nation.  Start of small, just help your brother or sister right next to you struggling and hopefully they will pay you back by helping the person next to them and the trend can continue.

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Unfortunately, several years later, this still proves to be the truth!  We spend more money on fighting other folk's wars than we do on educating our children and opening programs to keep them busy after school so they can be productive and not running the streets.  We have to invest in our youth as well as our elderly, they paved the way for us to be where we are today.  This nation needs to move to place where the advancement of our people is our top priority!

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
This speaks volumes.  It's time we look at people for who they tell us they are and who their character shows they are.  Lets not have preconceived notions about people based upon what they wear and the cars they drive.  Deep inside them may live dreams that get killed because no one welcomes them.  Take the time to be open to new people and new ideas, you never know what you might learn.

The quotes above are just a few of the many ground breaking quotes by Dr. King.  Take a look at the link below and read some more.  Educate yourself and those around you so that King's Dream will forever live on.
