    Happy Birthday to the late great,

    Ever since I was little I admired Dr King.

    I remember recite some of his "I Have a Dream" speech when I was around seven. In my adult life, I admire him even more. He was educated. Intelligent. He was probably one of the greatest orators of the 20th century. He can move you with his speeches. I definitely admire his...

    The Strength To Love

    I'm reading a book of Martin Luther King's sermons at the moment and I'm struck by how his teachings seem to have the power to reach all of me - my heart, my mind and my actions. He was a truly exceptional man. Such strength, such love and such courage.

    Great Speaker

    He sought change through non-violent means. I can see getting angry at what was going on back then. I can see the temptation of becoming a black panther or at least following Malcolm X. But that's sinking down to the level of the enemy. And gives them reason to say worse...
