“I have a dream”…MLK

Filed under: Blog, Uncategorized — Michael @ 2:18 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the breezy, partly cloudy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Friday morning, the twenty third day of August, 2013, a nice one on Cape, Hyannis/Hyannis Port to be specific. As this summer season winds down and the tourists are going back home to put their children back to school, I hope you all get home safe and sound.  It  has been a great summer on the Cape and Islands and WE sure hope you all come on back real soon and visit US on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age.  Today marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech “I have a dream”, where he truly shouted down from that mountain top he climbed where he saw the promised land where all men are created equal and that Justice and Peace prevails over ignorance and hate.  Watching Reverend Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s stellar show, “Politics Nation” last night, airing weeknights at 6 p.m. eastern, I was not only reminded of that famous speech on that fateful day fifty years ago, but also brought up to speed by the heroic efforts of one woman who perhaps saved the lives of countless children as she talked a gunman, loaded to the gills with 500 rounds in an AK-47 like weapon only a few short hours ago in present day America.  Her humanity and grace under fire was explained, and not made that public I might add by most media outlets, via the 911 tapes that the good Reverend displayed for all to read and digest.  This could have been another Newtown incident, perhaps even worse, yet this lady of great courage, a teacher, brought the LOVE that is sorely lacking in this blessed country of ours full bear, bringing the gunman back to his senses, laying said gun down and not killing anyone at all.  Her bravery in the face of death is awe inspiring and I pray you visit Politics Nation. com for more details, in fact, it is the best news story this reporter has heard in quite some time.  I am sure that Martin Luther King Jr. would have been proud.  Have a great week end folks and may WE all pause for a moment and reflect on the year 1968 and indeed 1963.  Remembering what was at stake then, how WE overcame that hate and what still needs to be done in the present and indeed the future to bring people together in LOVE and PEACE–the only thing that leads to true JOY. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS!

Peace~M
