Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room’s only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.
Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.


She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’

Epilogue:

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.
‘Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .’

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968). 

Two quotes to share; the first is from Letter From Birmingham Jail

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.’ Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.

Who wants to take bets on which Whites are going to reblog this and remove the quote, as he’s regularly misquoted, made a meme and used by them to silence Black people? :)

I also love this, something James Baldwin wrote about him:

The secret of his greatness does not lie in his voice or his presence or his manner, though it has something to do with all these; nor does it lie in his verbal range or felicity, which are not striking; nor does he have any capacity for those stunning, demagogic flights of the imagination which bring an audience cheering to its feet. The secret lies, I think, in his intimate knowledge of the people he is addressing, be they black or white, and in the forthrightness with which he speaks of those things which hurt and baffle them. He does not offer any easy comfort and this keeps his hearers absolutely tense. He allows them their self-respect—indeed, he insists on it.

Rest in peace.

Chances are some people may highly agree with this post and some may disagree or be slightly offended. It would be wise to read the entire post before you judge.

Martin Luther King Jr. is arguably considered the most famous African- American man in United States history. His August 28, 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech is one of the most famous speeches in American history. Many people have different interpretations of what his “dream” was. I guess at the end of the day only he would know, because after all it’s his dream, right? I have massive respect for this man although I don’t fully agree with his philosophy. The questions I’d like for us all to ask ourselves is if Martin Luther King Jr. were brought back to life today would he be pleased with what the black community has amounted to since his death? Is this what he wanted? Would he consider this a dream come true? Do you think he would condone the behavior of the black masses today in 2013? Well allow me to give my personal thoughts in response to these questions.

Before I continue I would like to give some detailed definitions to some important words.

Integrate - 1. To form, coordinate, or blend into a functioning or UNIFIED WHOLE.
2. to unite with something else.
3.To open to people of all races or ethnic groups without restriction.


Unity - 1. The state or quality of being one; singleness.
2. The state or quality of being in accord; harmony.
3. The combination or arrangement of parts into a whole; unification.

Conform - 1. Comply with rules, standards, or laws.
2. Behave according to socially acceptable conventions or standards: “the pressure to conform”.
3. To be obedient or compliant.

In my personal opinion, Black Americans never integrated and have never been fully accepted by White America.
Black Americans have conformed; we agreed to be compliant to the rules White America had set for us.

After the desegregation laws were passed, some were holding hands singing “Oh Happy Days” racism over!!! What we fail to realize is that America is run by owners who never “integrated” their wealth, power, or control. The top 1% of this country are the descendants of the owners who benefited from murder and enslavement of Native Americans and Africans.

In 2013, the owners of 99.9 percent of everything in this country are WHITE. Why is ownership significant to integration? Because when you own shit you get to make the RULES, you get to set the prices, and you have the POWER. Therefore one who does not own anything cannot set rules, cannot set prices, and has no power.

Which leads to my next point, the education system was never integrated. Black & Whites went to school to learn white Eurocentric history/culture. African/black studies are not required nor truly asserted into the curriculum. Black and White students do not learn much of anything positive about African/black culture. The result of this is maintenance of racism due to ignorance.

Because of that naturally there is a lack of respect for blacks which builds an inferiority complex in blacks and a superiority complex in whites. . Wait, there is one month given to blacks. “Black History Month” which is “Black History” but American history is White history, when they are the SAME history that happened in this country. Furthermore I don’t want you to lose the point.

Why isn’t the curriculum integrated? Because blacks don’t make the rules and White America hasn’t decided to yet. Why don’t blacks make the rules? Because blacks don’t own shit. Why don’t blacks own shit? Well besides the fact that since slavery there have been systematic rules /laws put in place to keep blacks from owning shit, blacks conformed during desegregation, gave up on black businesses. (With the Exception of the Black Panthers Party) The owners of this country never integrated the wealth so they’ll continue to make the rules and set the laws we OBEY, even if it’s not in our favor.

If the country truly Wanted to UNITE it would have integrated the wealth economically as well as with the education system. Black Men and Women are being incarcerated at alarming rates and not much is being done about it from “America”, why is that? Because the prison system is a business and blacks don’t own any parts of it. White owners are profiting off imprisonment. The New Jim Crow Laws. Pick up a book, wake up, get active, and organize. Slavery never ended it just changed forms.

America has never “United”; to do that would mean equal opportunities, benefits, and representation of all people. America never truly integrated either. If America were truly integrated it would erase white privilege, but white supremacy just can’t have that.

Maybe it’s called “A Dream” because you have to be asleep to believe it?
You know what? Let me put this drink down before I say something I regret.
