Metaphore#1- tranquilizing drug of gradualism We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism . Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice . Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood . Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children. It’s comparing cooling off and waiting like its a luxury. It wants freedom for black people like the declaration of independence. It wants the promise like was made for all men black and white for freedom to be treated as equals. It describes how everyone needs to stand as brothers and rise up from the injustice that was put on black people.
