This week bookends the birthday of a man with a great cause, Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fight for civil rights, and the Right to Life March that peaceably protests on the largest and ongoing holocaust of all time–abortion.
Monday, January 17, we celebrated the MLK holiday and Friday, January 21, the annual March for Life is scheduled in Washington, D. C. Martin Luther King believed in both “rights” found in the Declaration of Independence–the right to life and the right of liberty.
It’s time to reject a whopper of a lie.
We live in a time when character is in decline and greatness remains rare or wrongly defined.
Many of the “great” people of our time are famous simply because of their entertainment wealth or following. They live sad, debauched and immoral lives but are put on pedestals by those who adore them.
Not so George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Their lives truly helped change the world for good.
Some thoughts on character and greatness.
Two items dominate the calendar this week in the U.S.
First, the celebration of the civil rights prophet, Dr. Martin Luther King, with a national holiday that bears his name. And second, the partisan impeachment of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States.
I will deal with impeachment next week when the circus dies down a little. Today I’d like to share some thoughts on race in America.
Dr. Martin Luther King would be pleased–and give God the glory.
“Great things He has done.”
