Let Freedom Ring...

I was browsing around in the Internet in my laptop and I stumble on to this video, which is a digitally-remastered remix of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream". When I watch the video, besides the fact that it has a catchy tune, it reminded to me that the war against discrimination and oppression is not over yet and we must act now to defend the rights of every man. We must oversee that every man of every color has every right bestowed by God with pomp and dignity. I could have even cried of his message of hope for the future.

As soon as he uttered the eternal words "I have a dream", I begin to realize my own dream. I dream that every man has a right to stand up and dignify oneself, to be free in body and spirit, and that no one shall step the dignity of every one for God is eternal judge of the living and the dead so that the one who oppresses shall be thrown to Fire and the oppressed be lifted to Air to enter the Kingdom. King's words has circled the globe in every nation that people would stand up and not be defeated by the cynical plans of the oppressors that created the dark forests of prejudice, the quicksands of social injustice, the great axe of indignity, and worse... the villainous noose of the murder of peace and justice.

As we battle these obstacles, we must join hand in hand in fulfilling the utopia of people working side by side. A utopia where everyone is treated like equals, that everyone is "color"-blind except the color of their hearts, and that there is no such thing as a "second-class citizen" or whatever. We shall not be step down to those who conspire to bring eternal peace out of the way. 

Now is the time to rise from the blood washed puddles of oppression to the crystal clear pools of peace and togetherness. We shall now cross the Straight Path of Peace, Justice, and Dignity of the human soul with honor and pride.

We all have a feeling inside our minds and our hearts that we need to be free from the chains of indignity and hate, from the muddy slopes of denial and grief and so we must go on to the ends of the earth to find eternal peace in God.

And now the time has come for every soul to fulfill the dream of freedom and rise from the dust of defeat that is rubbed among our faces. The rule of the Iron Fist shall never prevail as long as the justice of the Almighty shall be enforced, and the reign of the Eagle's Claw of Justice and Equality shall forever govern our lands and skies with truth and integrity.

“O you who believe, be upright for God, and (be) bearers of witness with justice!”   Al-Maida:8
“O Mankind! We have created you from a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is he who has most taqwa among of you. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.”  Al-Hujurat:13
"And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help." – An-Nisā':75
"Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you."  –  Deuteronomy 16:20 
"The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love." – Psalms 33:5 
"And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts." – Psalms 119:45
The time has come that we will not submit to the chain of indignification known as "The Man". A time where the righteous are sent free to roam the earth to teach the Word of Goodwill, to protect those who've been stepped down, those who were being stripped of their dignity, and to those whose souls have been put to death.

I don't know where or when will our freedom roam by the time of the Judgement, but all I know is that God is with us always and forever to protect those who are in need. I, as his modern disciple shall teach the Words of Justice, Peace, Equality, Freedom, and Goodwill so that we may live in a world of fair lines and plausible paths.

"Free at last... Free at last... Thank God Almighty... I'M FREE AT LAST!!!" – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
