Remembering MLK

Few men have been as inspiring in their eloquence and drive as Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. His words are timelessly powerful.

Revisiting this time period in our history is always shocking–knowing that our free country was once so divided. It is a recent history too; not ancient past. I take the opportunity on MLK DAY to recommit myself to his ideals:

Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: – ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
Martin Luther King Jr., Speech at Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963

Enjoy this brief biography:

This is my favorite picture book about Dr. King–an illustrated I Have a Dream:

  1. King was a remarkably courageous man. Just the right man at just the right time, I’d say. I’m reading one of his four books (mentioned in the video) right now 🙂 Stride Towards Freedom. Love learning about great people of history from their own words/perspective.

    Also, didn’t know you had started a blog. Thanks for sharing the post on Facebook. You’ve now been added to my RSS folder 🙂
