Remembering MLK- 40 Years After His Assassination
I am overwhelmed by this man's leadership and fearlessness. A few years ago, I visited Atlanta during the month of February. I decided since I was there during Black History Month I would take a tour of the King Center. An amazing experience it was. The most moving part of my tour was when I visited Dr. King's house of worship, Ebenezer Church. I sat on one of the benches, alone, in the back of the church for over an hour listening to many of MLK's sermons that were being played over the speakers. An overwhelming moment it was for me-hearing his voice within the same walls where he'd encouraged others before me to overcome.
So much accomplished before the age of 40. What a movement! I so get his dream-I walk in it.
