Florida's Foreverly Shores
Having been inspired also by the quest for peace by Martin Luther King, Jr.,among others, I am glad that you also feel that the reach for peace is worthy of our efforts. Thank you, my friend.
What a remarkable response. It's obvious that you, are not only knowledgable of Martin Luther King, Jr's entire speech, but of the significance of our country's attention to perserving the rights and freedoms of us all. I thank you, my friend.
You are most perceptive in your grasp of the 'inspiration' behind my poem.
My admiration of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s
dedication to his 'dream' is my inspiration.
Bless you, Michael.
Thank you, my friend. I am personally pleased that you found the poem, the graphic and the quote of Martin Luther King, Jr., to also be significant.
Non-violence, peace, equal rights, and basic rights ... pretty powerful reasons for a cause, huh?
I will always hope that someone comes
along to continue 'dreaming' the 'dream'
that Martin Luther King, Jr. aspired to.
'Peace deserves a chance'
LET IT BEGIN WITH ME !
Thank you my dear friend.
God DOES bless the peaceful dreamers.
In due time, may we all be equally blessed.
Thank you, my friend.
Oh that we could all be 'seekers of peace'
as strongly as Martin Luther King, Jr. and others have been.
Someday, it will come. We all carry the
torch within us to make it happen.
Thanks to you and Dale.
Elizabeth, my friend-
Yes, I agree ... 'the road is long',
but never too long. I'm in condition ...
how 'bout you gal?
It's an 'awesome' goal for sure.
Thank you, my friend.
Thank you for liking what I wrote.
What a sensitive and touching poem.
My, it deserves a post of it's own.
Thank you for your wonderful thoughts.
How wonderful are your views on this.
God Blesses America for sure.
Peace and harmony hold hands.
Glad to join hands with so many wonderful
people in the cause.
So true, my friend. So very, very true.
Thirty nine years ... most of it spent
stiving for equality and peace. We should all be so inspired.
I thank my lucky stars and my God that I live in a land where someone can have an opinion that differs from mine and that I don't have to sacrifice MY beliefs to accommodate them.
I believe the quote from Gibbon states:
'I never make the mistake of arguing with people for whose opinion I have no respect.'
So, I won't.
