Character is destiny

As we are about to inaugurate a historic new president, it is good to remember MLK Jr’s hope that blacks (and all of us) would be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

In my history classes, we are covering the explosion of immigration that took place from about 1880 to WWI.  This immigrant’s story demonstrates that character is destiny.  He showed the character and values that we hold to be ‘American’ even before he came here.  And what a debt we owe to him.  (HT: Hugh Hewitt)
