Today marks 84 years ago that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born. Taken from us all much too early at the age of 39, the rights and freedoms that we all enjoy owe a great thanks to his vision and passion. Dr. King who as a principal force in the civil rights movement thought us to respect each other and to see a future where human rights for all could take precedence. A master at speaking, his voice could reach out and touch us deep in our soul. The world would have been greater had Dr. King not been murdered for his passionate goals of civil rights for all.
