5O YEARS OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING’S ICONIC SPEECH, ‘I HAVE A DREAM’ !

DR MARTIN LUTHER _69040009_mlk_afpgetty

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

”LET’S NOT WALLOW IN THE VALLEY OF DESPAIR. . . . . !”

Dr. King
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

TODAY MARKS THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE ICONIC SPEECH, ‘I HAVE A DREAM’ , DELIVERED BY DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING Jr. ON 28 AUGUST, 1963 IN WASHINGTON DC !

DR. KING WAS A PHENOMENON WHO FOUGHT FOR AN EQUAL SPACE FOR THE COLORED PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES LONG BEEN REELING UNDER THE BURDEN OF SLAVERY, PERSECUTION, ILL-TREATMENT AND ALL WERE DUE TO THE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION PRACTISED AND WHETTED BY THE LEGAL SYSTEM !

DR. KING WAS A GREAT ORATOR AND DUE TO THIS SKILL HE ALWAYS USED TO MOBILISE THE BLACKS AND MADE THEM AWARE OF THEIR PATHETIC PLIGHT AND APPEALED FOR A UNITED VOICE OF PROTEST WITHOUT RESORTING TO VIOLENCE !

AN ARDENT VOTARY OF TRUTH AND NON-VIOLENCE, DR. KING WAS A ORATOR AND ‘I HAVE A DREAM’ IS PRECISELY A TESTAMENT TO HIS ERUDITION, FAITH AND HOPE !

5O YEARS GONE BY AND RACE IS STILL ROOTED DEEP IN AMERICAN PSYCHE,HOWSOEVER ITS EXTANT AS WELL AS CONSEQUENCE ARE QUITE SMALLER THAN WHAT IT WAS HALF A CENTURY AGO !

FORTUNATELY TODAY A MAN FROM THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS OCCUPYING THE HIGHEST POST OF THE LAND !

Pres. Obama Is Going To Address A Symbolic Gathering On The National Mall In Washington As The 50yrs Commemoration Service Will Kick Off! He Is Expected To Be Accompanied With Two Former Presidents, Mr. BILL CLINTON and JIMMY CARTER !

‘LET FREEDOM RING ALL AROUND. . . .!’

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING Jr. AND PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE 50TH COMMEMORATION !

e_hutch_mlk_obama_500x279

DR. KING & PRES. OBAMA : DREAM
& REALITY !
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
”THERE COMES A TIME WHEN
SILENCE IS BETRAYAL !”
Dr. King
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING Jr. AND
PRESIDENT OBAMA :-
THE HERO AND HIS SELF CLAIMED
FOLLOWER !!
shortly mr.obama wl step on the
same ground at national mall
where dr.king had had his ‘i hv a
dream’ speech exactly 50yrs ago
and enthralled a gathering of
nearly 250000 americans most
of
whom were job seekers, labor
unionists n people who were
desperately seeking a hike in
their
wages. . .!
50yrs have passed and
coincidently today there is a
huge
dearth of jobs n burgeoning
unemployment n cracks in
economy !!
IT IS STILL A MATTER OF GREAT
INTEREST,RATHER DEBATE
WHETHER THAT SPECIFIC HISTORIC
DREAM OF DR.KING IS MORE
ACUTELY
FELT NOW, FOR THE AMERICAN
DREAM IS
PASSING THROUGH ITS LEAN PHASE
AND THE RESULTANT GROWING
DISCONTENT IS TAKING A
WIDESPREAD MANIFESTATIONS IN
FORMS OF PROTESTS MARCHS OR
OCCUPY MOVEMENTS !!
THE DREAM IS YET TO BE FULFILLED
IN ITS ENTIRETY EVEN IN MATTERS
NON-ECONOMIC IN NATURE!!
A NATION,RIGHTLY or WRONGLY,
OFTEN, LIVES IN
SYMBOLISM AND THE MOST SELF
GRATIFYING SYMBOL TODAY IS THE
CURRENT US PRESIDENT WHO
HIMSELF HAILS FROM DR. KING’S
COMMUNITY AND UNDOUBTEDLY
STANDS TALL PLUS MIGHTY ON
DR.KING’S DREAM OF A TIME AND A
MINDSET WHEN A HUMAN BEING
WILL BE JUDGED NOT ON THE
BASIS
OF HIS/HER COLOR ,BUT ON
CONTENTS OF HIS/HER
CHARACTER !!
SYMBOLICALLY THAT DREAM HAS
GOT SOME OUNCES OF CHEERS ,
BUT PRACTICALLY IT FACES MANY A
VALLEY OF DESPAIR !!
HOPE IS A GREAT CONSOLATION
AND A TIME TESTED SHORT TERM
PLACEBO. . .!
So, Let There Be Hope. . .
Free At Last,
Thank Almighty !!
LET THE RING OF FREEDOM ECHO
EVERYWHERE !!
