The founding principles of Let.live are Consent Culture, Tolerance and Change. On Dr. Kings birthday it’s important to remember that he was assassinated because he was a voice for change.
Dr. King stood for the best of American ideals. As he said in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail,
One day the South will know that when these disinherited children of God sat down at lunch counters, they were in reality standing up for what is best in the American dream and for the most sacred values in our Judaeo Christian heritage, thereby bringing our nation back to those great wells of democracy which were dug deep by the founding fathers in their formulation of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.Martin Luther King Jr.
And those who opposed him and his struggle to end Jim Crow and segregation tried to kill him. And eventually they succeeded. Sadly our history is filled with the stories of martyrs who tried to bring a positive change into others lives. Dr. King left behind a great legacy, but the most important charge he left to all of us is to advocate for those who want only to live their own lives, and are not being allowed to do so. Dr. King showed us the path — we have to advocate for the Live and Let Live philosophy.
