Happy Born Day, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

During one of his sermons at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, a couple of months prior to his death, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. touched so many hearts that day.
He said, in part:
" If any of you are around when I have to meet my day, I don't want a long funeral. And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell them not to talk too long...Tell them not to mention that I have a Nobel Peach Prize, that isn't important. Tell them not to mention that I have three or four hundred other awards, that's not important...I'd like somebody to say that day, that Martin Luther King Jr. tried to love somebody...I tried to feed the hungry... I want you to say that I tried to serve humanity...tell them that I was a Drum Major for peace..."

We love you, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and to your family, for understanding the need to "Wake up" the entire Globe by marching against Black America, setting a precedence for others to unitedly march against cruelty, injustice, bigotry and the general belief that certain groups should be "entitled" to food, clothing, shelter, education, and a viable means of making a living, while others should simply stand on the sidelines and suffer, due to a lack of such necessities. In America, we had you, Dr. King Jr., and your associates in the trenches, fighting(non-violently) for justice in America the Beautiful.
Yes, Happy Born Day, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.~

Love & light, Carla
