Dr. King Remembered

Today is the day we remember and celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King. He was an extraordinary man who did so much to right the many wrongs that had been a standard part of public life in this country. Today, as time has gone on, all of us tend to forget how difficult his fight was. Many just take for granted the results he achieved without remembering the personal suffering and vilification he was willing to endure, and ultimately to forgive, to achieve progress in race relations. It is a mistake to forget what he suffered, and today’s holiday is but a very small token of the respect we now afford to him after his assassination. That was one tough fight, and Dr. King was one tough man to persevere. Our nation owes him a huge debt of appreciation for his work, and for his life.
