Love: Martin Luther King Jr and Coretta Scott

"People fail to get along because the fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other"
-Martin Luther King Jr

Growing up, and still to this day, I love learning about individuals who fought for equality and justice for all. I remember being in the fifth grade, and learning about Martin Luther King Jr and his dream. He inspired me to create change; he assured me that, the bigger the dream, the better, that it did not matter about my age or race; I COULD DREAM AND CREATE CHANGE.


In honour of the late, Martin Luther King Jr.
January 15, 1929- April 4, 1968

  1. I am so happy that you did this post. Other bloggers in my dashboard have not mentioned him at all. Thank you for this, not just because I am part African American but for all people to remember the importance of this day.
