He was born in 1928. And he was assassinated in 1968.
He was a Pastor. He was a Leader. He was an activist and a humanitarian.
He was a husband. And he was a father of four.
He was a Nobel Peace Prize Winner.
And he had a dream. A dream for all Americans. A dream that so many still dream of – including me.
He is a hero.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, the third Monday of January, is the day Americans honor and celebrate the life and achievements of a man whose dream was to achieve the true meaning of “land of the free” by striving for racial equality.
In honor of MLK Jr… might we all be a little kinder to those around us and judge each other less. Might we be more accepting of those we view as “different” – be it race, religion, or otherwise.
After all, we ARE ALL God’s children.
