The death of “Greatness” in America
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
I read today’s newspapers, demands for an attack on Iran. Iran has no nuclear program yet there is no voice in America to stand up to the liars. Dr. King is dead. He would have been heard.
King defined greatness. The silence today, the silence of the last decade and more? No American leader can be called great, none now, certainly not in decades, not since the deaths of John and Robert Kennedy. This lack of “greatness” is a national tragedy.
There is no greater symbol of “greatness” than that put forth by Martin Luther King in his “I have a dream” speech. The struggles have changed, some victories won but others are lost. When you hear Dr. King speak, compare his message with those of today. Put his words and feelings into today’s context.http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/01/17/gordon-duff-mlk-a-dream-for...
