MLK Speech on Vietnam War 1967

Point from King's Speech:"Beyond the calling of race or nation or creed is this vocation if sonship and brotherhood." (Lines 103-105 pg. 154)"We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation, for those it calls "enemy," for no document from human hands can make these humans any less our brothers." (Lines 110-113 pg. 154)

Similar Point in Today's World:In an interview, Maya Angelou once confirmed that King deeply cared how others were treated saying, "He cared about women. He cared about the poor. He cared about the Spanish-speaking. He cared about Jews. He cared about poor whites, the miners, and those who were having a very hard time." I believe that one of the reasons King was so successful in provocating change was because through his powerful words he encouraged people to be compassionate. He reminded and continues to remind us that we're not part of one country or one race or one religion. We're all one world and as part of the human race we must not turn our backs on those who needs us the most for fear of what could happen. The Syrian refugee crisis has affected more than 12 million people and the way the world has responded to the worst humanitarian crisis is simply not enough and quite disappointing. How dare we close our borders to those escaping death, hunger, and illness. I wish more people could understand that documents should not define our right to live freely. We're selfish to deny refugees aid for fear of them taking our homes, jobs, money, and freedom. I choose to believe in the good people can do and refuse to support heartless fools like Donald Trump who stated he'd send refugees back if he won the presidency.
