I was 8 years old when this happened and was so impressed by Dr. King. As an innocent child, he made all the sense in the world to me. What he said and what he stood for.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has been in my heart since a child of only 8 years old. He is part of who I am because of his great influence on me. He was a spiritual man that lead the country into a new movement.
He did not do it with violence, but rather through his words. I carry him in my heart always. He is one of my heroes and honoring him today is a blessing.
For those of you who didn’t live through this wonderful time of man, I inserted this video from 1963 in his famous speech that moved so many to justice.
So my friends, the next time you think of being a leader, think of what this powerful man has done. He believed in something so strongly. He acted with persistence. But the main thing he did as a leader was to help others.
May he NEVER be forgotten!
