Work still left to do

An editorial by the CKNJ Editorial Board

Some day, prejudice will no longer be a part of our world. Some day, individuals will not be "judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character ..."

That dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is still evident today, especially after this past week's events honoring his work to promote equality for all.

From Saturday's march and reception to Sunday's and Wednesday's worship services, it was a time to celebrate the life and legacy of the famous civil rights leader. It was also a time to dream of a future free from the prejudice and strife of our nation's past.

While much has changed for the good, we still have work to do.

King's famous words have been repeated by generation after generation, and we hope that they're not taken lightly, that there is truly a driven force that earnestly wants to accomplish equality and opportunities. It's also important to ask ourselves if we are modeling the best behavior when it comes to racial issues.

Congratulations to the Campbellsville Ecumenical Ministerial Alliance, Taylor County Civic League, Greater Campbellsville United and Campbellsville University for helping us pay tribute to the memory of a great man.

It's up to us to continue his work.
