Martin Luther King, Jr. Is A Man To Be Respected

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Martin Luther King, Jr. Is A Man To Be Respected.  Tomorrow is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  this is a day well deserved of being celebrated.   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 take 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. A Is A Man To Be Respected.

George Souto  good for you I watched when Bobby Kennedy was assassinated and then watched when MLK was assassinated... it  made me pause as a new legal immigrant that this country is not what my father dreamed about...Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. hi Endre... I was in high school when JFK was assassinated and to this day remember that day with total clarity. To then live through the assassinations of both MLK and RFK a few years later as a university student was truly a shock to my psyche at that time. I was not a new immigrant, but it was not the country I grew up in in the 1950's.

Nina Hollander, Broker  well said indeed I am so glad my parents are not alive today to see what this country has become... not what they dreamed about when they immigrated here legally, Endre

From what I have heard about him he has definitely earned my respect.  I just wish that his dream would have become true by now.

I can't help but wonder what the world would be like had he survived to live out his rightful destiny.

George Souto - MLK was on my mind. The house he lived in with his family at the time of his death was about 3 1/2 miles from where I grew up. I have memories to painful too forget. The rioting was horrible.

George Souto - FYI... I really like how the artist drew MLK's profile! The light lines are so interesting!!!
