Happy MLK Day~a testament of hope

mlk, martin luther king quote

“Let us never succumb to the temptation of believing that legislation and judicial decree play only a minor role in solving problems.

Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated.

    Judicial decrees may not change the heart but they can restrain the heartless.

    The law cannot make an employer love an employee or a teacher love a student, but it can prevent him from refusing to hire him or teach him because of the color of his skin or his disability.”

                     Adapted from the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “A Testament of Hope”
