As Marchers Mourn, MLK's Dream Is Alive in One Blood America

Today, in remembrance of the 56th Anniversary of my Uncle MLK’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech, as Executive Director for Civil Rights for the Unborn at Priests for Life, we are announcing our release of a new report “Black and Brown Americans In Search of the American Dream.”

Black and Brown Americans, and indeed all Americans should pause today and consider our dreams for our families, for our communities, for America, and for a better world. In fact, as the One Blood human race of Acts 17:26-28, we are not color blind.

We are not separate races; we are the one race "beloved community for life."

We must learn to communicate together; to dream together; and to love each other God’s way.

Also this weekend, following the MLK anniversary, I’ll be joining my colleagues Rev. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and co-designer of the “Beloved Community for Life” project, will be joining fellow organizers The Restoration Project and Douglass Leadership Institute for the "National Day of Mourning for Life."

From another MLK message, his famous eulogy-like “Mountaintop” speech, I’m inspired and praying that we will come together in Agape love and regard the sanctity of all human life; from the womb to the tomb.

“I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go to the mountain. And I've looked over, and I've seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.” — Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In some cases, the world seems to have forgotten what Martin Luther King, Jr. knew. We must remember to pray. Pray for President Trump, America, and the World. "We must return to God."

Last week, in the midst of planning for this week of observances, I woke up from a dream, hearing my grandfather Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. say, “I’m going to see a man about a mule.”

In that Daddy King’s cryptic reference to the mule is tied to the current reparations debates, I firmly believe that as people of One Blood, we must repent, forgive, be forgiven, pray, and unite. "Back to God" is the right direction for the times. Our Treatise is a message for this season.

Yes, today, August 28th, 2019, marks the 56th Anniversary of the ‘MLK Dream speech.’ It is fitting therefore to follow up the release of our Treatise this weekend at "The National Day of Mourning for Life," and call for an end to crimes of humanity including abortion, and all violent, harmful, and degrading acts committed not only against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow, but an end to all acts of inhumanity towards humanity. We must unite and pray to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.

Isaiah 9:2 "The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; light has shined on those who lived in a land of darkness." Wake up America! We Are Not Colorblind.

"Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude." Colossians 4:2

In the midst of life’s challenges; racism, war, poverty, human trafficking, abortion violence and evil of every kind; in order to escape the abyss, we need help from God to fulfill Uncle M. L.’s dream today.

On this 56th MLK "I Have a Dream" Anniversary, as we join together as an Acts 17:26 One Blood /One Race America, let us unite in Agape Love, hearing and obeying God’s Word – “Return to Me.”

Let’s pray and help Keep America Great as Agape Love, Repentance, and Forgiveness are resonating across the atmospheres; reaching into the darkness and awakening a heavenly fire and light that cannot and will not be denied.

Be encouraged. Pray for America. Don’t strike back in hate and fear. Go on the offense God’s way. Love your enemies. May God forever be our Defender.
