Unfilled dream

August is the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech.

The dream, in light of recent events, still seems yet unrealized.

For many, including those who profess to call themselves Christian, the injunction to love your neighbor as yourself, has also not become a day to day reality.

Events around the world, especially notable in the Middle East, show in stark detail that this injunction along with the Golden Rule are certainly not a part of conscious thought.

We are all members of the same family, the human family. When we will ever grasp that.

— Michael E. Holland, Fort Worth
