If Dr. King had one Tweet to Share…

mlkJust imagine if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had Twitter or other social networking means at his disposal; his message would have been even more impactful.  Our message, story, voice, thoughts can literally be shared at our disposal… by the push of a button.  As the day we have set aside, to honor the life of Dr. King is upon us; I’d like for us to answer this one simple question:

If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had one Tweet to share with us at this moment in time, what would he Tweet?  Share your response in 140 characters or less!  I’ll go first!

    We’ve come a long way together, the white man and the black man, but there are still other tribes, races, and tongues to treat as our equal

  • I have a dream..that one day social networks will join hand in hand with churches in spreading the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth,

  • (From @focusvision via twitter) Free at last. Free at last. Thank God Almighty. I am free at last. -MLK Jr. – Thru the Word of God. I am there, free at last

  • I’m wondering if his one tweet would have even made an ounce of difference…or if it would have been lost in the million of tweets trying to make a difference.

    It is God alone that made me a free man. Oh, I was once a slave, a slave to sin and death, but no man can chain me again. Jesus set me free!

  • The dream does not stop with Civil Rights, but it presses forward until we have served justice to all of mankind.

  • Ditto to Aaron above. Everybody is trying to retweet majestic things all of the time.

  • We will overcome the 140 character limit. Together as one, we can tweet Shakespeare.

  • Sacrificing originality I would say this…

    Dr King would say…


    I look forward confidently to the day when all who work for a living will be one with no thought to their separateness as Negroes, Jews, Italians or any other distinctions. This will be the day when we bring into full realization the American dream — a dream yet unfulfilled. A dream of equality of opportunity, of privilege and property widely distributed; a dream of a land where men will not take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few; a dream of a land where men will not argue that the color of a man’s skin determines the content of his character; a dream of a nation where all our gifts and resources are held not for ourselves alone, but as instruments of service for the rest of humanity; the dream of a country where every man will respect the dignity and worth of the human personality.”

    From me…

    I am not sure tomorrow is the realization of this dream, though it may be a step when color isn’t an issue in an election or anything else…

    I think Dr. King would praise a black president and scorn the lack of character in much of today’s leadership…

    I think the issues he challenged back in his day, he would continue to challenge today… like the superficiality of the culture, the lack of character and integrity, and challenge the people not to settle for anything less than truly loving your neighbor as yourself, fighting for the rights of the innocent, and upholding moral integrity and social accountability…just like his master Jesus did…

    Some things are worth living for and dying for…

    Some messages fight the madness so hard that they are hated while they are preached, and rejoiced over when they are forgotten and all that is left is the remembrance of the courage of the men who preached them, and the cowardice of those who opposed them…and put them to death…

    Some things can’t be said in less than 150 words… but I truly think Dr. Kings tweet would be something like that… his life sure was…

    I think he’d say our work has only just begun. It’s time we extend compassion and non-violence to all living beings. Specism, like racism, is a form of oppression and injustice. I think it’s revealing that Martin Luther King’s son and widow are both vegan (meaning they do not use or consume animal products).

    Coretta King called her adoption of a vegan diet in 1995 “a blessing.” And her son, Dexter, who has been vegan since 1988, says that an appreciation for animal rights is the “logical extension” of his father’s philosophy of non-violence.

  • Maintain your focus on HIM, do not lose hope, we struggle together with HIS support for goals bigger than all of us -Love WILL overcome hate
