Martin Luther King Jr. Day

"We will one day find the promised land. I may not be there with you, but we will reach to promised land."

What is the "Promised Land" of which MLK spoke? A country where all people are free and equal. His phrase, "I may not be there with you" means he probably knew it would take a while. He was shot and killed the next day.

Today, I would say we are only half way there, sadly. All men are free but they are not equal. And I am not just talking about race here either. As long as this country's government is run by the "religious right" there won't be equality for anyone who is not a white male Christain.

Just my $0.02. And why not, it's my blog. :)
