The past is transitory. It’s hard to place any thought on the past and fathom it as the real, true happening to be equated to this very moment. It’s due to growing and changing as a people, as nations, at an alarming rate. However, Martin Luther King, Jr., and his day of celebration next Monday is a past historical remembrance of a Great Soul where no doubt real changes and shifts in consciousness took place to bring us to a time to where, even not so in the distant past that it was, is hard to believe such hate ever occurred.
America has made countless moral mistakes in it’s past and current, through slavery, American-Japanese concentration camps, unnecessary wars, segregation, the treatment of Native Americans, and most recently, it’s disconnected spending in Government, banking systems, and their corporate conglomerates with using the very people who make it run.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of the people, beyond his race. He stood up at a time in the name of God in Peace and Love on a topic that alarms us just to think about it ever existing. It shows how far we’ve come, and how much his work matters. Dr. King sought justice for a people being unjustly viewed and ruled by a system due to the color of their skin. In today’s issues by removing the skin color and adding your bank statement, you’ll find the universal Truth that Dr. King stood up for with us all.
He was a man of awareness. A clear voice and heart, and when he yelled, “I have a dream…” we listened, because God spoke through his very core.
At Manchester Wood, we open the discussion on Martin Luther King, Jr. a little shy of a week from this day of celebration to open the conversation. What this man stood for, and how can we continue to apply it today?
We’re growing as a nation, we as a people are becoming more aware, through shopping American Made products, occupying our hearts in demonstration for a brighter future, and growing to an age of empowerment.
I believe Dr. King would be proud, and would ask us to keep having dreams for a brighter day for all of God’s inhabitants.
God bless you Dr. King, and God bless the consumers of our justly made American furniture, and God bless the power coming to the American people.
May our past escape us, and our future amaze us!
