Dr. Martin Luther King Jr would have been 92 years old. Although he is no longer with us, his legacy continues. One of my favorite quotes is:
“All men are created equal”Hansen, Drew (2005). The Dream: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Speech that Inspired a Nation. HarperCollins. p. 98. ISBN 978-0-06-008477-6.
Although slavery in the United States had been long abolished, racial segregation had not.
Finally, the law was changed to make segregation illegal.
I like to remind everyone that while some of us take our rights for granted, there are places where the same rights are considered a privilege or do not exist at all. There are still places where human beings are stripped of their rights because of their race, ethnicity, or beliefs. What is happening these days in
NagornokarabakhRead my other article on the Armenian and Greek genocide.
I would like to thank those individuals who have been working hard every day to improve human rights for the rest of us. May God reward their acts of righteousness.
I would like Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday to also be a day to fight against the violations of human rights of the ethnic Armenians as the Christian minority residents of Nagorno-Karabakh. I would like to call the world to join us in the fight to put a stop to the geographical expansion of religious fanaticism combined with the ambitions of the ethnical tribunal as well as racial supremacies, nature carried out of hatred, as well as the violent act of ethnic cleansing that ranges from cultural genocide to mass murder. Unfortunately, the Christian minorities, particularly of Ethnic Armenians, seem to be the target. It has been carried out in the NargornoKarabakh by those who possess dangerous ideas (that to me, do not seem that different from Adolf Hitler’s). Please help us stop the disaster before it is too late. And finally:
May God bless the one who sees and never turns a blind eye.
May God bless the one who hears and never remains silent.
May God bless the ones who fight for those who are too weak to fight.
May God bless the one who cares about those whom no one cares about.
In the honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
