Dear Dr. King:
I wonder what you'd say if you were alive today. I can't help but think you'd be a bit disheartened by the state of the world. It doesn't seem like people are being very nice to each other of late.
Tension seems to be running so high throughout the world. There are wars and unrest everywhere. It seems like the more hateful a person is, the more press and celebrity they receive. I wonder if you would have even received a headline if you were preaching today. The only preachers I'm hearing about are the ones who hate gay people, or the ones who've had numerous affairs or broken laws. The good guy is finishing last.
I'm trying to stay true to your word and look at the content of a person's character. Sometimes, that's a lonely road. I can't imagine how difficult it was for you, and I truly appreciate your efforts and the sacrifices you and your family made. I won't lie to you, I like having today off from work too.
Thank you for your works and your words. I will do everything I can to honor you and them.
