“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

It was on April 4, 1968 that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, TN on the balcony of his hotel. Many were both saddened and enraged. Riots broke out all over the country. Dr. King was an honorable leader, reverend, activist, father,and an inspiration to millions. He continues to be an inspiration to many today and his memory lives on. He instilled hope in others and fought for the freedom of all mankind! He is the only African-american with a national holiday and now has a memorial in Washington, DC. Today, on the 43rd anniversary of his death, we remember a remarkable man, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    my poem Tear down the wall it’s ugly it’s tall only you and me can make it fall one on one the process has begun but when in mass brotherhood gets knocked on it’s ass I often wonder why this has to be is everyone two faced now which one will I see prejudice is prejudice it’s just ugly to me there once was a man who had a great dream he believed in our potential if we worked as a team the man was Martin Luther King now he’s dead he layed on that terrace and slowey bleed so remember this man when you kneel at your bed and carry his dream till all people wed. We miss you. Sincerely Jeffrey Douglas Dunlop
