Living The Dream

Okay, I stole 60% of this from a friend's blog, but I changed the pictures to be relevant to my family.  Thanks, Emily Alexander for being so creative!!!
 “I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.” 


 “We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” 


 “the time is always right to do the right thing” 


 “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.” 


“There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.
 “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” 


 “Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” 


“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, "Love your enemies." It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. (from "Loving Your Enemies")” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
 “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” 

 “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.”
