I heart MLK jr. not only did he dedicate his life to a higher cause, but he insisted on non violence.
Lots of people helped him along the way, but he had a great deal of personal sacrifice, jail time, and
personal threats, including some who felt he should not address the Vietnam issue.
King spoke the truth & openly stated this country as one of the greatest purveyors of violence.
He did not shy away from the truth & worked hard to get to civil rights.
Peace, Justice, & equality today still remain issues that must be dealt with.
