Today we celebrate a great man of History, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
He was a man of action, a man of thought and deed and a man who had the gift of being able to speak to all people. He will always be known as the man who made America understand Civil Rights for all people.
We know the story of his life and his death but to his family he was Husband and Father. They shared him with the world in life, death and grief. Today I remember his family who lost so much that day in April. The world lost a leader but nothing will ever be more than losing family.
It is on this day we try to remember as Americans that we are all in this together. It doesn’t matter what color, religion or ideology. We are of the human race. We are responsible for the well-being of not only ourselves and our family but of those of our community.
His message might fall on deaf ears but it’s a message we should never stop believing in or sharing. All men are created equal. The least of you are my brother and as a community we should hold onto these messages during dark times.
