Government Pg 4
Without laws there would be chaos and mayhem. Laws are based on morals passed down through the ages through Judeo-Christian history.
The dignity of human life, common decency, and the support of traditional family values have been the backbone to society and are crucial to society. It has been witnessed and experienced that the break down of the family is the break down of society.
Government laws and the judicial system must uphold the underlining values. Today, in the Twenty First Century, these very values are under attack.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Rev.Martin Luther King Jr., Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.
Rev. King was a man of great courage and faith who was at the centre of the civil rights movement. He continued despite attempts on his life including a fire bomb attack on his family home.
In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other nonviolent means.
His father and grandfather were both ordained ministers. The U.S. have declared the 3rd Monday in January to be an annual public holiday in his honour.
Written on his memorial are the concluding words from his "I have a dream speech": "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
