Dr. Martin Luther King

Dr. Martin Luther King giving his most famous address, I Have a Dream.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. denounced the Vietnam War while standing at the pulpit in Riverside Church. Dr. King said that there comes a time when silence is betrayal. Not only of one's personal convictions, or even of one's country alone, but also of our deeper obligations to humanity.

I agree with Dr. King. Silence is betrayal. To your country, your personal convictions, your family, your community, and your deeper obligation to humanity. I'm not asking you to be a civil rights leader...just speak up with love.

It's not about Republican or Democrat. It's not about left and right. It's about truth, honor and integrity to yourself. Speak up. Speak from the heart. Speak out.
