Just dropping this here, in case anyone here needs inspiration for today.
A beautiful speech given by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 3 1968. I remember catching this on the radio probably an hour after he gave it.
Thinking what a pasting he had just given folks like George Wallace
And less than one day later he was assasinated. And I remember being confused at first, wondering if someone had misinterpreted this speech. Only to
find out, in horror, he had been killed.
I will always remember where I was when I found out MLK had been murdered. Just as I remember where I was when the news about JFK being murdered, or
I wonder what Martin Luther King would think about life in 2020. Would he be sympathetic to BLM? I doubt it. He was a proponent of society
accepting everyone to have equal opportunity. I doubt he would support reparations either.
It's unfortunate that we're a few generations past MLK's struggle and still so far from the "dream".
Yessir! I remember being memorized listening to him speak, maybe it's the tone of his voice, the sincerity of his message, the strength of his
convictions or just the times...but man did it feel like he was speaking right from his heart to yours
What a loss! But the changes he inspired and the lives he touched went on to do so much good
His legacy is certainly a shining light ☺️ I wish he could have seen how big of an impact he had. Kind of like Tesla, who died without knowing how
truly successful he was or would come to be
