Continuing our day of observance, we share with you NASA’s celebration of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s struggle in the civil rights movement. We observe and recognize his social and political struggle as today’s legacy; a legacy that has helped to pave the way for the enlightenment of our humanity.
Indeed we are blessed and privileged to have had such a leader. We are blessed and privileged that our children will be able to look up to him as an example of what it means to be a citizen of this country and a citizen of this planet; and we are blessed and privileged that our children’s children and future generations will be able to look up to him as an example of what it means to be a citizen of this country and a citizen of this planet, and beyond.
Perhaps someday his vision will be actualized before our species explores the stars. Perhaps his vision will be a catalyst for exploring the stars. And that catalyst and thus enlightment will be the self-actualization of our species.
