Velshi: Working for the Dream


In a year marked by constant and tremendous racial strife, celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the meaning of a day honoring a man who was committed to peacefully fighting for civil rights is even more poignant. The greatest takeaway may be the idea that even after that tragic day in Memphis in 1968, killing the dreamer didn’t kill the dream. The events of last week have made this one of the darkest chapters in Washington’s and this country’s history but come Wednesday, we will move forward. As tragic and confusing as it all feels right now - we must, as Dr. King said, accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
