He had a dream and we have a nightmare! If Martin Luther King, Jr. were still alive what do you think he would be doing? Which social outrage would he be championing? Just trying to pick one is enough to cause a nervous breakdown!
Mr. King had a clear and easy decision to make when it came to causes. Racism was a social institution that needed to be ended. Today, we have so many social, economic, corporate & political institutions that need to be ended one could go insane trying to figure out which is the most important one to address. I wonder if Mr. King was alive if he would wish he was back in the good old days when it was easy to spot the injustice in society, less challenging to find informed people who supported his efforts to correct that injustice, and we had a news media that was not one of the most damaging injustices as it is today. I wonder if he would think back to those times as the good old days for he only needed to dream back then; today he would need to awake from a far more complex nightmare! Think about it!
