I have a dream

When I was a little girl and going to school, I don't remember much about learning about Martin Luther King Jr.  We learned about slavery and racism.  Maybe I just forgot, I'm not sure.  My children have learned about what this great man has done for our country.  Yes I said a Great Man.  I'm sure alot of people will agree.  In fact and old white man in the nursing home told me the same thing.  He was a Great Man.  When I look into his eyes in old photographs, I can see the truth and righteousness there.  I can see God's love shining out.  I like this video I found on Youtube.

He truly was a great man in the truest sense of the word, and to be cut down like that was one of the cruellest travesties ever.
A great entry

I love the "I have a dream" speech, and listen to it a couple of times a year.  When I visited a friend near Washington, DC and we stood where that speech was given so many years ago, I could almost hear it ringing in my ears.

Unlike some other activists, yes, he was a great man.  He truly believed in his dream.

He was a great man...such a tragedy he was murdered.  You have to wonder what would have happened had he lived on.

I cannot see the video.  But I agree, he was a great spokesman for God.  -  Barbara
