The Content of Their Character

unnamedMartin Luther King certainly had a worthy dream. The dream borne of embracing the plan God has for mankind. Freedom to be loving and at peace. In my lifetime, I doubt I’m ever going to witness this as the norm, but there is always hope, and that’s built on the assurance that one day it will be seen.

For now I take it where I can find it, and one notable place is online where most of you have no skin color or any other physical attributes. Part of me does love it when you reveal who you are or where you come from. But another part of me loves not knowing your age, your weight, your race, blah, blah, blah, because it allows me to focus solely on your words. And your words usually reveal more about who you are than your outer shell, and it’s who you really are and what your character may be that is most important to me.

note: I noticed as I was posting this piece that Perry has a post linking to a video of the speech.

  1. There are many places where and people with whom this in the norm – and I bet you know a few of them. Best to you.

  2. I know a few of them and am thankful! Best to you as well! :)

  3. Lovely essay about friends across the miles and across cultures and ethnicity, etc.! And for those who want to learn more about Dr. King, I’ve had the Nobel Prize bio link on my blog sidebar since what would have been his 85th birthday on Jan. 15th:
