He lived and died in a time of upheaval. The Vietnam War, Kent State, and baby boomers.
Mr. King stood tall in the face of real discrimination not the watered-down version we have today. And though like all mortals, he had human failings, Mr. King rose to become a hero. He walked a different path, a harder path than most of us would have the courage to tread.
Honor this man today and every day.
Martin Luther King
