        Monday is the USA official holiday for Dr. Martin Luther King's Birthday, and January 15th was his actual day of birthdate.  He had a dream and that dream still lives on!

        In honor of Martin Luther King

            Some kings rule their kingdoms sitting down
              Surrounded by luxury, soft cushions and fans
              But this King stood strong
              stood proud
              stood tall

              When the driver told Rosa
              "Move to the back of the bus!"
              When the waiter told students
              "We don't serve your kind!"
              When the Mayor told voters
              "Your vote don't count!"
              And when the sheriff told marchers
              "Get off our streets!"
              using fire hoses, police dogs and cattle prods
              to move them along
              This King stood strong
              stood proud
              stood tall
              Speaking of peace
              of love
              and children
              hand in hand
              free at last
              free at last

              When some yelled for violence
              For angry revenge
              An eye for an eye
              And a tooth for a tooth
              He stood his ground
              Preaching peace

              And when some spit out hate
              He stood there smiling
              Spreading love
              Until it rolled like the sea across the land
              Sweeping away Jim Crow
              Breaking down the walls
              Ringing the bell
              Joyfully
              For Freedom

              Until
              Standing on the mountain top
              They shot him
              Coldly
              Hoping to see him fall
              Hoping to put him away
              To bring him low

              But this King
              even in death
              even today
              stands strong
              stands proud
              stands tall
              And we remember
        by Jamie McKenzie

          I never have understood racism or hate.  I mean the time and energy people spend on them always seemed like a waste to me.  I am too lazy to put out that much effort.

        It's a shame,  Happy b-day MLK

        He was, simply put, a wonderful human being. 

        I love to watch video of his speeches.
        They give me goose bumps, no matter how many times I watch them.

        Happy Birthday MLK...

        I agree jako, i never understood hatred to any race. But in our great country of the US it runs rampant. I have always hoped Dr. Martin Luther King's message would end all racism.

        Sadly we have all fallen victim to it. But we can still dream for a better tomorrow.
