“It’s a dream that we can find a job with wages that support a family. That we can have health care that’s affordable for when we get sick. That we can retire with dignity and security.

      How is that fact relevant to the actual topic of the post? I actually used that picture because it shows a rally in front of the Washington Monument. My only reference to MLK was in reference to a specific dream he spoke about and accomplished, and he was one of several mentioned. Do you dispute the accuracy of what the American Dream is? If so, on what basis? As for David Barton, haven’t read him. Glenn Beck does a great deal of research for his books, but I think I’ve only read one, several years ago, and otherwise I don’t listen to him. But, thank you I suppose for placing my writing alongside such well known voices. Have a blessed day.
