Today we celebrate with service a man whom without his historic sharing of his dream, and there are many days that we may not think so, we may not have seen the fruitions of our dreams.

A man that sacrificed his family and life for the privileges that now make us King and Queens. A dream that he may not have seen in the flesh but one that he can see as he sits high and looks low.

A dream that would allow us basic decency’s has turned into us running our own businesses, allowing our children the same education, a dream that allowed our first black president, and although there are many days the ugly devil of racism still rears it’s head from the rearing’s of the past, we are because of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,  in a better position to stand up and fight now, as opposed to then.

Although our struggles may still be evident, our strength continues to grow from the planting of the seed from the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Lord, we ain’t what we oughta be. We ain’t what we want to be. We ain’t what we gonna be. But, thank God, we ain’t what we was.”

May you take this day to educate our young to remember what was, for in order to get to our great future we must not forget our past.

Please share the videos with your young so that they know where they come from, A KING
