Has Anybody Here Seen My Old Friend Martin?

Today we celebrate the Civil Rights Hero, Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

I remember hearing his speeches on the magical box. I remember the shock and grief when he was assassinated.

Here is his "I Have a Dream" speech. I urge you to listen to it if you have not, and listen to it AGAIN if , like myself, you have before.

The Transcription is HERE:

Rep John Lewis, of whom Herr Trump has infamously said is "all talk no action" gave this moving tribute. He, of course, marched with Dr King Jr as well as marched at Selma and was nearly killed for his beliefs: something the Donald knows nothing about.

This site gives a goodly view of Dr King's life

His Letters from a Birmingham Jail should be required reading for ALL Americans.

Has anyone here seen my old friend Martin? I just looked around and he was gone.  

I miss them every day. I fear we have another long road back to equality before us. I fear we will have to fight this fight yet again. #RESIST #SURVIVE
