Martin Luther King, Jr. Was A Man Who Deserves Our Respect And Honor.  Martin Luther King, Jr. deserves this honor and much, much more.  Some may argue that his dream has not been fulfilled, but I would argue otherwise.  However, this is not the blog to make that argument, this blog is to honor a man who saw beyond color, and focused on equality for all.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream not for himself but for all mankind.  A dream of equality, freedom, and justice.  Nothing Martin Luther King, Jr. did centered on himself, it all centered on others.  His life was one of service to others unconditionally.

As a young boy from a different country, Martin Luther King, Jr. taught me a major life lesson, one that I learned very early in my life.  He taught me not only to dream, but to fully expect the dream to be fulfilled.  No matter how huge or impossible the dream may seem, it can come true if we are willing to climb to the top of the mountain, and work to fulfill our dream.

I Hope you took the time today to reflect on the life of an honorable and just man, who left an example of how to live in service to others.  Martin Luther King, Jr. Was A Man Who Deserves Our Respect And Honor.

Hi George,
Oh, how I wish we had a modern-day Martin Luther King to help heal our country from all the hate.

Well said, George! Those of us who remember the challenges he faced when he was alive can't deny what a positive impact he made on our society. It was long overdue and he paid the ultimate price. 

Your story was beautifully written!!!

Morning George.

I remember the day he was assassinated.  I actually have been to the place where it happened. So sad

Martin Luther King was a great man and a great example for everyone.  He focused on the higher calling and the big picture.  His legacy lives on.  He made a difference!
