Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.- From The Mountain Top
There's so much irony w/regards to American and British history.
On April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., gave his last heart wrenching speech,
" I Have Been To The Mountain Top".
On April 4, 1968, a sniper took his life, in Memphis, Tennessee.
Just thinking about how and why he was murdered still brings tears to my eyes.
If only Dr. King Jr. could see that he paid the price for Global change. If only he could see how far we have grown as a Nation in 41 years.
Dr. King Jr., if only you could see the first Black President - President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama break down barriers; yesterday they traveled across the ocean to the U.K., for the G20 Conference. During the G20 Reception at Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II, of England, broke protocol to embrace the First Lady.
This is a first in British and American history.
It was truly symbolic of change.
Dr. King Jr.,The Obamas' would make you proud. They are intelligent, capable, fearful of God - and they love each other. President Obama and his wife are what you hoped and prayed for. They are what we need Globally today to help move this beautiful country forward. Why? Because they represent red, yellow. black, white and brown. They represent America.
