Remembering Dr. King

I ran across this and had to share it with all of you:

"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, TN on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968. In honor of this anniversary, Reuters TV takes a peek at some of the enduring images from MLK's life and legacy."



Rest in peace, Dr. King. You were a great man and you will always be remembered.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I think he must have known his life was constantly in danger. What a sad world that the colour of someone's skin is even an issue - it's ludicrous and maddening. I don't know how far we've actually come though, if push came to shove.

    1. I think people who stand up like he did know their lives are in constant danger. I couldn't agree with you more about this being a sad world. We advance in so many other ways but can't seem to evolve socially. And like you, I find it insane how the colour of someone's skin is even an issue. What alarms me the most, though, is how many great leaders - like this man - who have tried to make this a better world have been assassinated. That's very disturbing.

  2. Thank you for this wonderful post. We can not forget how much hope Dr. King gave to our society. As Jane said, I fear we are sliding backward again. :(

    1. Dr. King will never be forgotten, but it would be nice if his efforts were finally realized - fully!

  3. "Make Gentle The Life of this World" was my post from Nov. 21 of last year. It shows the speech by Robert Kennedy after Martin Luther King Jr's assassination. 1968 was a very troubling year, I remember it well and I was only eleven.

  4. I remember that day so vividly. If there was a martyr for the cause of freedom for African Americans/Canadians it was this great man!
