The Gold Standard

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

With those words, Martin Luther King set the gold standard for how a person -- any person -- should be measured.

That this would ring just as true for a middle-aged, middle-class white man like me as it did for a civil rights icon like him is testament to it's truth.
