Martin Luther King III Addresses Leadership Conference in New York
Written by UPF International
Friday, September 21, 2007
Martin Luther King III, the eldest son of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., appealed to more 400 leaders of the Universal Peace Federation gathered in New York City to make a new commitment to fulfilling the dream of peace.
"History will judge our generation," King said, recalling the words of his father, "not by whether we did what was popular or safe, but whether we did what is right." King said that the tools of faith and non-violent action, so successful in his father's civil rights campaign, could also prove effective in reaching the UN Millennium Development Goals, which are aimed at solving the urgent problems facing the world's children, including hunger, disease and the need for education for all.
