I offer a moment of peace in GD with my drawing of MLK Jr
I have a lot of favorite Americans but Dr. King is number 1. He was a truly enlightened soul who understood the power of peacefully changing the world. To him peace was not only a goal, but the means to attain that goal

65. A couple of months after he was killed Robert Kennedy was killed too
And Nixon became President.

History would have been very different.

It's almost too sad to contemplate

She had it in the Lounge, and while it was good there, I knew it deserved to be here too...

And I also knew that once here, it would grace the Greatest Page.

As it deserves!

8. Very nice. Thank you.
I was in Memphis a few years ago for a meeting, and I went to the site of MLK's assassination. The very simple motel has been turned into a memorial, but the appearance and feel of the place remain what they were when MLK was shot. I found the simplicity and everyman appeal of the place a good reminder of what any person can achieve if they refuse to play the game and accept the status quo that we're being asked to accept.

There will be no more monumental progress until another monumental leader like MLK emerges.

You have captured his essence completely. Thank you for sharing your talent and for giving me a moment of peace on a turbulent day.

Dr. King is one of my heroes too. I have some old vinyl LPs of his speeches that I have saved and still play from time to time when I need a spiritual boost.
