Despite having Constitutional rights blocked, basic civil rights denied and facing arrest or lynching - Dr. King led the people to non-violent action, civil disobedience.
Police brutality, fire hoses and dogs employed on a regular basis Dr. King never shouted "burn it down, burn it down", instead he instructed us to use our freedoms!
Freedom of ASSEMBLY
Freedom of SPEECH
Freedom of PRESS
THE GREATNESS OF AMERICA IS THE RIGHT
TO PROTEST FOR RIGHTS.
WE MUST USE OUR FREEDOMS:
Not to sit idly by as our Country runs itself in to ruin.
Not to loot, burn and vandalize our own communities when outrage takes hold.
Not to continue to be complacent, but instead to stand vigilant.
Where are the voices of men like King today,
speaking for common good?
It's time to speak out America.
We watch as civil unrest,
joblessness and hopelessness descend on the masses.
We watch as our children are terrorized in their own schools.
We watch as our local police becomes militarized.
We watch as government grows more corrupt, simultaneously useless and yet increasingly powerful.
WE MUST USE OUR FREEDOMS.
