DEARBORN, MI – U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
“Today we honor a man who dedicated his life to this nation’s promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every person. His advocacy for the principles of love, justice, service and equality inspired people across this country, regardless of race, to seek a better, more tolerant and more just future.
“On this day, we recommit ourselves to advancing the principles that Dr. King taught us, remembering that even in times of challenge, we are all Americans. We share common hopes, fears and dreams, not least of which is the common desire to build strong communities and create a brighter future for our children and grandchildren.
“Today may we rededicate ourselves to working as one to forge a future where all may seek Dr. King’s vision of equality and opportunity. For we recognize that the fight for freedom and justice is never finished; it is ongoing and constant.”
