17 Jan

Speaker of the House John Boehner

WASHINGTON, DC, Jan 17 (KATAKAMI.COM / SPEAKER.GOV) — Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement in recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

“With words that continue to inspire, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. challenged our country to look inward and honor the promises our forebears made to secure the blessings of liberty.  Reverend King stressed faith and grace in his quest to achieve freedom and equality for all, preaching that the ‘time is always right to do what is right.’  Recent events have reminded us that whatever our differences may be, we can disagree without being disagreeable to each other, and we can seek to be right without being self-righteous.  Reverend King led a committed life, and it is right that we continue to honor his memory and reflect on his legacy.”  (*)
