As those of you in the States know, today was celebrated as the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As with the birthdays of all our celebrated heros, saints, and martyrs, it is good that we remember his birth.

It is better that we remember his life, his accomplishments, the things he tried to achieve.

It is still better that we remember why he was killed.

It is best if we continue his work.

Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech is, IMHO, one of the greatest of his generation, perhaps in all of American history.  But it is not enough to remember the words.  We must remember the ideals that inspired the words, for they are the ideals that inspired our constitution, and indeed which inspired the creation of our nation.  Put simply:

That ALL people are EQUAL in the eyes of God, before the law, and to each other.

LIVE the ideals.  BE the words.
