“You know who to vote for.” A statement from a powerful and insightful ‘Civic Inspired‘ speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1964 on leadership in America. King’s speech is indicative of today’s social and civil strains, and leadership many feels has failed its Citizens. This speech could be transported into 2020 America with no revisions required.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. | In His Own Words
Suffice it to say that we stand in one of the most momentous periods of human history. In these days of emotional tension when the problems of the world are gigantic in extent and chaotic in detail all men of goodwill must make the right decisions.
On Tuesday, (One week from today) the people of this nation must decide whether they want America to remain true to the great words of the founding fathers: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. That among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We must decide whether those words (Constitution) will be firmly etched into the structure of our nation, or whether we will allow our nation to be relegated to a second-rate power in the world with no moral voice.
Each of us has a moral responsibility (To participate in that decision). Go to the polls on the 3rd of November and vote your convictions. You know who to vote for.
