My son came home from school a couple weeks ago really excited about a rap he learned in music class, based on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. He is always one for cookie ideas for me-some possible, some not so much-and he suggested I make MLK cookies. Hmmmm…….maybe, I told him.
Then it hit me later that night. I remembered that awesome picture that circulated the net…the one of the crayons, in all shades of browns and peaches, and they all are labeled as “flesh”. Such a simple yet poignant visual. Then I had my idea for a cookie tribute. The hardest part was coming up with just one Martin Luther King, Jr. quote to put with it.
So thanks E, for your idea. May MLK’s words forever continue to inspire you and us all.
“I have a dream. I have a dream that one day, people will be judged by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
