WASHINGTON–U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-5) released the following statement to commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“On this day, we pause to remember the courageous life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His eloquent words and nonviolent approach to attaining racial equality will never be lost on the hearts and minds of people around the world.

“Dr. King continues to inspire us to love one another and to keep the dream of freedom and equality for all – regardless of race, religion, or ethnic origin – alive.

“We must all work towards a society where skin color is as irrelevant as paint color; where the central organizing and relevant unit of society is the individual, not the ethnic or racial group.

“It is my sincere hope that the American people will take time to reflect upon Dr. King’s teachings and continue to work towards the principles of peace and justice that he devoted his life to.”
