We’re not supposed to be this race and that race. We are Americans.”
On this day of 8/28/2013, many people spoke this day. Two former presidents, one talk show host and multi people remembering 50 years ago when one many and many people stood up for the rights of many.
Before Obama addressed the throngs gathered at the Lincoln Memorial, civil rights leaders past and present remembered the decades-long movement to secure equal treatment and rights for African-Americans.
King, Obama said, “gave mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions,” hailing leaders who braved intimidation and violence in their fight for equal rights.
“Because they kept marching, America changed,” Obama said. “Because they marched, city councils changed and state legislatures changed and Congress changed and, yes, eventually, the White House changed.”
Is this really about a dream one man had? Or is it something much more?
Says- for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Once we get past separating ourself’s by finance, color,and status, maybe we can start living the way we were meant to live. Perhaps one man’s dream to bring justice was based on his up-bringing and faith he had in christ. We are all equal. We are the seed of Abraham.
