Inspirations For Peace : Martin Luther King Jr.

English: Dr. Martin Luther King giving his &qu...Image via WikipediaThe holiday of Martin Luther King Day, is a time for remembrance and self analysis. Remembering our ancestors of all races, nationalities, gender, and orientations. Remembering the hunger in the fighters, that would protest for freedom and liberty. Remembering those enslaved by ignorance and persecuted by hate. Through our history, there have been many great leaders, truth seekers and teachers of inspiration. Martin Luther King, was all of those.

On this day and throughout the rest of the year (and the rest of your life), reflect on the passion of our great heroes. We should all strive to be more like them. We should inform ourselves and seek enlightenment. To be at peace with the world around us. To accept each other for our differences and learn what there is to be taught. As a nation, as individuals and as one world, we should tare down the walls of bigotry and self worship. We should put up a foundation for peace and prosperity. And look towards the future, where all people are equal and peace is the only currency.

If MLK had lived long enough, I'm sure he would advance this cause, like his son Dexter does now:

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then plead for "Peace on Earth."
