Martin Luther King, Jr


Before moving on to the day's activities.....and checking out some of the holiday sales....stop and take a moment or two to reflect on the life and times of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., the greatest voice and figure of the civil rights movement, and someone who should be in the list of everyone's Ten Greatest Americans.

Had he lived, he would have been 82 years old on Saturday, the same age as my mother, who's birthday was last week as well.

Dr. King was murdered at age 39.....a life cut tragically short.

And he was one of too many of our countrymen who's life ended as a result of gun violence.

He was indeed a remarkable man. Sadly, I doubt if we'll ever see anyone like him again - at least not in my life time.
