We are keeping "the Dream" alive by working to make "The Dream" a reality. We dedicate this blog post to Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a change agent for the Civil Rights Movement. A crusader of love, peace, and equality.
Here several inspirational quotes by Martin Luther King Jr:
-A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
-A lie cannot live.
-A man can't ride your back unless it's bent.
-A man who won't die for something is not fit to live.
-A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.
-A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
-A right delayed is a right denied.
-A riot is the language of the unheard.
-All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
-All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.
-Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.
-An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
-An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.
At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love.

On behalf of CAISO SteelBand, I thank Dr. King and all Freedom Fighters, that have paid the ultimate price for equal opportunities and civil liberties. As musicians, we serve the community through our music. Music is therapeutic and empowering like quotes. We believe in Dr. King's dream. Let us all live & strive to make "The Dream" a reality for all people especially those undervalued and marginalized.
