 “In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. 

We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. 

We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. 

Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.” of our forefather’s creation based on total individual freedom, choice, and responsibility.  

Martin Luther King Jr.

Every year I place these thoughts in MLK Day.  In these days of turmoil when the traditional right to peacefully protest is being hijacked by anarchists whose goal is not reforming and improving our system but replacing it, I thought that it would be good to remember his words today 57 years after its delivery.     

It was originally intended to emphasize the continued plight of blacks and also to reflect on myself and other compatriots’ thoughts and longings re, Cuba.  

This year, ML King’s words unfortunately apply to all citizens regardless of race, sex, or place of origin.   

Every one of us is threatened by the philosophy of some elected politicians that aim to impose upon everyone controls in our way of life, with the often promised and always failed collectivism where a few would decide everyone’s duties by having “we the people” receive all kinds of gratuities in exchange for freedom of choice.  

This action if successful will be the total opposite of our forefather’s creation based on total individual freedom, choice, and responsibility.   

A year has passed and with a new president. MLK would be appalled at the way “racism” is now portrayed and the solutions proposed.   

 For those false “saviors” that demand “equity”, a 

radical change of our culture, our history, and form of governance, practicing the worst form of “racism” in order to rule everyone regardless of race, it is promoting the opposite of MLK’s hope, the one he gave his life for!    SHAME!!!
