Martin Luther King, Jr. Day


Excerpt from Martin Luther King, Jr's Last Speech (full text here):




At church yesterday, our pastor read an excerpt from this speech; I found it incredibly moving. I encourage you to take the time to listen to it or read it.

Lecia,

Your photos are very moving! If your pastor hasn't seen these photos yet, I bet he would love them. Thank you!
Enjoy your golden day my friend! xoxo

We had an excellent sermon yesterday as well, although ours included Ghandi and MLK.

I've also been very impressed with the amount of information the school is teaching kindergartners about today. Gillian certainly knows more than I did at that age!

He makes my heart ache. Without him, this week wouldn't have been possible. I wish we all used our strength as he did.

This post and your post on the inauguration are wonderful. I've been so busy this week to make any posts on my blog. I was happy to see that your blog had just the posts that I wanted to see.
