        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

    Whereas, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of our nation's truly great leaders;

    Whereas, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had many dreams: of an America where "justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream"; of an America where neighbors look "beyond the external accidents and discern those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers"; of a time when "this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed, "we hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal";

    Whereas, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream for a better society -- a dream where "the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood";

    Whereas, The visions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. continue to bring hope and inspiration to people of all nations;

    Whereas, All Americans must continue to gather inspiration from the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and strive to realize his dreams: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives

of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana,

the Senate concurring:



    SECTION 1. That it is fitting and proper that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. be remembered and recognized by future generations of Americans.
