In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Dr. Martin Luther King‟s “Love, Law, and Civil Disobedience” offers an important message today as it did when it was given in 1961. The essential message is one of love and respect for our fellow man, and can we honestly look at our society today and claim we have reached a point of love and respect for all people? When we examine recent events, health care reform, issues in education, war, and immigration, we should realize we still have a ways to go."
