Both King and Gandhi were frustrated that they could get people to protest but not to serve.

For blacks and whites to live in harmony and work in unity to see this become a reality. For blacks and whites to live and share unity in learning how to become one human race sharing their lives with mutual respect and dignity for one another.

MLK's major theme was and still lives-it is Universal Peace,a peace between all peoples.This Peace begins in the heart of the family unit, government,schools, offices churches,communities,residential and apartment dwellers,and other groups that gather to interact.There must be collaboration and forgiveness so that there is a unified solidarity in the Face of Evil. It is not easy but this is where PEACE begins so "let it begin with me" and you...

Dr King's most important message was: stop the violence against people of color...first and foremost. From this point.... we learn to respect one another. From this point we can learn to love one another. Learn is the keyword.It does not happen overnite. We all are born into an evil and hate-filled world but we all have the ability to learn what we need to know. As it should be. All people are worthy of respect and honor. God did make us all truly equal. Regardless of what another human being may think or say.

That he, up to his last breath, hoped and believed that one day this thread would not be needed.

I believe the most important message that Dr. Martin Luther King tried to send was that everyone is equal and that we can all build a better world despite our differences.

I believe that,Martin Luther King,was trying to tell everyone of all races. That we all are equal in GOD'S eyes. That someday we will all be as one. It's seem to me that, when a good person tries to tell the world,something good,they kill them. Many good men have beem killed since I was born in 1946. What a world we live in. GOD, Tries to tell us in Bible to love one other. I guess people don't read their bible like they should.

I believe Martin Luther King was a strong man of God, very principled and his most important message was that we are all equal in God's sight and we should treat each other as equals. Not as this person is better because they are this race or the person is inferior because they are 'colored'. I am the type of person that doesn't base what I think of a person on their race or categorize people, I let each individual's actions tell the story. You can't judge a book by it's cover.

I believe that MLK has made a different in the Blacks lives,because he preached Equal Rights For All People. I feel that the mindless thinking of some people still exsist -- inspite of progress made. And after so many years-- Why? could any race consider themselves superior to another I will never understand this way of thinking. Oh but maybe I do, those oppress people don't have Christ in their hearts.

Point of order, Coretta is MLK's widow. I believe that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of God who truly believed that the Gospel could transform people. He had faith that the ideal expressed in the Newer Testament could be a reality in our lifetimes, although he prophetically understood that he might not be alive at the time when "...they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, netiher shall they learn war anymore." Isaiah 2:4.

Coretta Scott King, I will honor your father's birthday as you have illustrated - across ethnic, cultural, and relgious boundaries - in individual acts of kindness. To me, this is the foundation upon which is based the world to come.

MARTIN LUTHER KING'S MESSAGE IS STILL IN PRESENT TENSE. WE ARE FREE, EQUAL AND WE DESERVE PEACE. COLLECTIVELY, ALL OUR FAMILY WORLD WIDE DOESN'T BELIEVE - WE DESERVE PEACE ... NOW WE ALL CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THAT PEACE ... NOW IN YOUR OWN WAY EVERY DAY MAKE YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO PEACE ... NOW WE DESERVE IT.

Most important to me is that Dr. King could look ahead with optimisn and see that there would (could) be a time when we live in a world without racial hatred. This means that some day in the future, our children will not live with this terrible burden.
