Today, around this great nation, Americans have reflected on the legacy of Martin Luther King. Alone, he stood before the multitudes and asked, persuasively, for a new world. We are in that world, imperfect though it may be, his assassination leaving a fissure across the possibility he saw. It is incumbent upon us, his heirs of all races, to see through his DREAM, and bring it to fruition. We must pluck from our harvest the rotten fruits of racism and sexism and negativity, and leave a vibrant, strong and healthy future for our children. I had the great fortune to meet Representative John Lewis while I was in Washington DC. He is a part of the legacy of the movement Martin Luther King led. To hear him speak of our current president in answer to a question by George Stephanopolous: “I think he is a racist,” must send a shiver through our collective peoples who make up this country. We must not, ever, forget the eloquent demands of Martin Luther King. And we must act on them.
