The unifying message of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is still needed today

Usually Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day passes by as a bleep on my calendar. A few inspirational quotes on social media and a few hours reveling in his writings, and then I move on. This year feels different. I feel our country is at a point where the life and words of Dr. King have profound meaning.

As our culture tries so regular to do, I have recently noticed a push to delegitimize the mutual admiration most people have for the legacy of Dr. King. He is most commonly known for his moving speeches about civil rights, his historic leadership and calls for non-violence. All this is very well and rightly to be revered by all human beings, but we are told, that’s not all.
