CONSIDERATIONS FOR AMERICA ON MLK DAY
(TXPBC-PAC) – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was admired as a worldwide principled man that was true to his beliefs. Below are a few key MLK principles that hold true today in a world where disinformation is rampant and social media has become a platform to divide our country by race, politics, region, education, and using fear-mongering and spin as the weapon to cause harm. We are optimistic that people still know what is good in this country, good in its people and we know we see good every day if we are paying attention to real life. Yes, politics will play out, always has and always will. We believe our country is not as screwed up as portrayed on the news and social media. Both sides of the aisle know they are elected to serve, and we believe those that put them in office are paying close attention to what is important. We pray that truth, honesty, transparency, respect, honor, and some economics 101 will win the day. Remembering a few MLK principles can go a long, long way in helping make that happen.
1. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
2. We must either learn to live together as brothers or we are all going to perish together as fools.
3. An Individual has not started living fully until they can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of humanity.
4. Every person must decide at some point whether they will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
5. The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
6. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.
