Happy M. L. K. DAY!

repost remix

What are you doing today to honor the memory of this legendary civil rights hero?

Martin Luther King was more than just his "I Have A Dream Speech." He was a husband, a father, a preacher, an activist and most of all a man. His legacy paved the way for our current African American president Barack Obama.

I really like this picture of him. He looks so serene and thoughtful.

Today is a great day to reflect on what privileges you have obtained because of the sacrifice of our fore-fathers.

Thank you! I hope you enjoyed yours as well. Oprah's show today showed us just how far we have! It was deep!

Yes that is a great photo and you are correct in saying that we should reflect! I should have read this before I got on the bus this morning because I sat all the way in the back. LOL. Just kidding. There were no seats in front.
