Transform your Neighbourhood into Brotherhood Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

One of great liabilities of history is that all
too many people fail to remain awake through
great periods of social change.

But today our very survival depends on our ability
to stay awake,
to adjust to neww ideas
to remain vigilant
and face the challenge of change

The large house in which we live demands that
we transform this worldwide neighborhood into a worldwide brotherhood.
We must work passionately and indefatigably to bridge the gap
between our scientific progress and our moral progress.

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Civil Rights Movement Speech 38 years ago.

  1. I like these one too ( These are by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)

    "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."

    "There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don't have it, they unconsciously want to destroy it. "

    "Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. It is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love."
