There are certain men throughout history who set our hearts ablaze.
They remind us that freedom is not merely a political commodity that can be given or taken, but rather a dimension of self that, when inwardly realized and outwardly embodied, manifests in the world as a presence that must be respected.
For me, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one such man.
Today, I am sharing the “Let freedom ring” portion of his infamous “I have a dream” speech.
I post this on the day after Independence Day because that is the day that really challenges us:
How much do we express and celebrate our passion for freedom when society does NOT provide us with constant reminders and incentives for doing so?
How we answer that question will determine our legacy far more than any of the flag waving we do on the 4th of July.
May we “Let freedom ring” in our hearts every day of the year.
