Observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Pin It
Hey all, 


So... Today I wanted to do something for the GREAT Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 


"A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan."


"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."



"An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law."


"Discrimination is a hellhound that gnaws at Negroes in every waking moment of their lives to remind them that the lie of their inferiority is accepted as truth in the society dominating them."


"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."


Glory to GOD for this man... standing up against the negative and the racism and the foolery to bring Black people up out of bondage and despair!! I'm truly thankful for him and all that he did for us... 

Thank you, Dr. King!! You are truly missed and I'm forever grateful for the part you have played in history for me and my family!!

Keep Watching,

Wow, I love this post. Dr. King affected so many people's lives too bad he did not live to see it. Such a tragic loss of a great man.
