His sacrifice allowed everyone that has ever been denied justice to be given access and opportunity for a better life. What makes a person give himself to a cause? What keeps fear abated in order to move forward to take on challenges that are insurmountable?
The answer to both of these questions is belief in a cause that is righteous and thus any sacrifice would be rewarded and the object of the cause achieved. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of Christian belief. He knew that his life must be given that others might survive and progress.
His cause was the cause of all people. His victory was a victory of all people. His national holiday a celebration of all people as they acknowledge that without his sacrifice the country would be a hypocritical example of one nation under God and freedom for all.
Let’s reflect on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and see what we can do to keep freedom for all a right and not a privilege!
