I Have A Dream

Martin Luther King Day 2019

A Letter to Our Youth:
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech, “I Have a Dream” is a powerful, eloquent, sacred vision and prayer for the future of the United States of America.
“I Have a Dream” magnifies the urgency for us to teach the footprints of our past, the Doctrine of Discovery, Manifest Destiny, slavery and Jim Crow. The footprints are etched into every fiber of our social educational and political way of life, influencing our rule of law.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech, “I Have a Dream” is not just a speech, it is a way of life we all must strive for if we truly want our democracy to mature to the sacredness that our flag represents.
I take great strength and hope from “I Have a Dream.” I strongly believe in the youth of America and take inspiration from them, knowing our future is in good hands.
―Billy Mills

Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.

sexism is the primal, or first, form of oppression in humanity

Sexism is a form of oppression and domination. As author Octavia Butler put it, "Simple peck-order bullying is only the beginning of the kind of hierarchical behavior that can lead to racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, classism, and all the other 'isms' that cause so much suffering in the world."
