Martin Luther King, Jr. is a man who has carried on the founding principles of our great nation and is rightly honored today. Let’s all pray for the day when we will truly be judged by the “content of our character”, rather than the color of our skin. Be we white or black. Let us work to drive out hate with love and darkness with light. Thank to Martin Luther King, Jr. for joining our Founders and those who have kept their legacy alive to ensure that men live free and their rights as individuals are respected. Remember, in the end it was big government that created unjust Jim Crow laws that violated the natural rights of individuals in America. Government that is not limited is often at the root of our problems, along with a rejection of the moral path God lays out for his people.
Shown is a poster reproducing the “Rule of Law” monument at Founders Corner Monuments in St. Petersburg. Dr. King is honored there on the corner of 4th St. N. and 62nd Ave. N.. Please visit and bring your children, friends and family. Click the poster for a larger version. The quotes accompanying this particular monument are reproduced below in part. Other greats who fought for the rights of the individual are featured with MLK like John Adams, James Madison and Ayn Rand.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
“I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”
“A government of laws and not of men.”
“Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty.”
