I believe, that Dr. Martin Luther King’s words should be remembered as a mantra to end hatred and bigotry that have surfaced and become pervasive, not only in the United States, but around the world.
My memory of the Civil Rights Movement is vivid and the TV, radio, and newspaper coverage still resonates with me. How different that coverage would be today with the Internet, social media, and the technology connects us to a people and places we might have only read about in books or magazines.
In the United States and in countries around world, people continue to exist in civil turmoil and are in need of long-over due changes for acceptance and appreciation of others. Sadly, people needed to be taught to respect the benefits of inclusion, instead of focusing on the negativity of exclusion. It always amazes me to think about the Green Innovative Brain Power that has created the technological changes in the world. Just image if that energy could be harnessed to create ways to offer people education, food, jobs and a safe home for their families.
Dr. King said, “We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.” How encouraging it would be if people and governments used:
Their Yellow Brain Attributes to be respectful and dedicated,
Their Blue Brain Attributes to authentically communicate and collaborate with one another,
Their Green Brain Attributes to solve problem equitably, and
Their Orange Brain Attributes to be resourceful and love freedom, so they could
put an end to the ongoing man-made divisiveness and weave a network of mutuality.
Dr. King also said, “The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace, and brotherhood.”
