Statement from NHDP Chair in Honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

Concord - In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
"Across the country, Americans are honoring Martin Luther King Jr. and the sacrifices he made for the cause of freedom and equality."
"But Dr. King's legacy is not just one of civil rights, but human rights as well.  And on this day, it is incumbent upon every man, woman, and child in this country to remember his lesson that 'an individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.'"
"From health insurance reform, to banking reform, to getting people back to work, we honor Dr. King's legacy by fighting for a better tomorrow for every American and rejecting the narrow special interests that threaten the important progress we have made.
