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.
