大侠行天下日记 我见我闻我思 01/17
一九六三年八月二十八日 ，金恩牧师在华府林肯纪念堂前发起了争取工作和自由大游行， 揭开了美国全国争取政治和经济权利的大门， 但是在一九六八年，年仅三十九岁的诺具尔和平得奬者确在田纳西州遇刺身亡， 為了纪念这位民权斗士 ，每年一月的第三个星期一定為马丁路德金恩记念日。
今天在休斯敦街头 ，阳光普照， 正如其他各地主要大小城市一般， 各型乐队及花车正在游行， 许多政客也挤在队伍中， 為美国的民权自由继续吶喊。
老实说 ，我们亚裔种羣， 今天在美国社会中具有之地位， 是要感谢金恩博士之努力， 他们早年在争取平等自由之艰难时刻中 ，曾经為我们流血流汗，甚至牺牲了宝贵之生命。
整整五十八年过去了， 非常遗憾 ，我们的贫富不均， 社会矛盾和种族裂痕还在不断的受创和加大， 和当年金恩博士所说的「我们有一个梦」还距离太远。
终其一生， 这位黑人牧师為终止种族隔离法令之脚步从未停歇， 对抗所有不公平之待遇，為我们争取最基本之自由和平等取得了丰硕之成果。
今天， 亚裔 、非裔及拉丁裔在社会上取得了一些成果 ，包括许多大城市之市长、 检察长、部会首长及国会议员都由少数族裔出任和当选 ，但是近年来警民冲突和不公不义之事件还在不断上演之中。
金恩博士之伟大情操和梦想， 也许是在不断退色之中， 我们实在太需要有真本领的政治领袖才能重振国力， 真正实现「我有一个梦」的梦想。
“I Have A Dream”
On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King launched a March for Freedom in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. It opened the door to the fight for political and economic rights in the United States.
Unfortunately, Dr. King was assassinated in Tennessee at the age of 39.
Congress has designated the third Monday of the month of January of each year as
Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is a federal holiday in the United States marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.
Today on the streets of Houston, Texas, just like in other major cities in the U.S., all kinds of bands and floats are marching and celebrating the life of Dr. King. Many politicians have also joined the team and continue to shout for civil rights and freedom.
To be honest, our Asian American community that is now an important part of the American society needs to really appreciate Dr. King’s efforts of striving for equality and freedom. He bled and sweated for all of us, and ultimately sacrificed his precious life.
Fifty-eight years later we are still fighting for social justice and still too far from Dr. King’s vision of “I have a Dream.”
Africans, Asians and Latinos in this country have made many major advancements in American society, including the mayors of major cities and thousands of civil servants as well as many members of the U.S. Congress. But in recent years, so many conflicts between the police and the African American community still persist as the fight for political and economic rights and the fight against poverty continue.
Dr. King’s dream may be constantly fading. We really need a political leader to lead this nation now to revitalize our national strength so we can truly realize the dream of “I have a dream.”
