George Allen reflects on the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senator George Allen reflected on the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, releasing the the following statement:
“Today, and every day, we remember and honor the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose mission of equal opportunity and freedom continues to inspire Americans to unite under the empowering thread embodied in our Constitution that all men and women are born with the same God-given inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a champion for freedom and justice for all people and his spirit has strengthened the bonds of our nation as we continue our journey to become a more perfect union. His courage to stand up for his core convictions and what was right in the face of bigotry and injustice will help define leadership and sacrifice for generations of Americans.

“Today we reflect on the remarkable legacy that Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left behind, and every day we work together as a nation to live out his Dream and vision for a better future of equality and opportunity for all.”
