When Martin Luther King died, I was like many people in the south and really did not like him because of the disturbance of the civil rights movement. Things were just fine the way they were. Now that I have matured and understand the situation better, I have much admiration and respect for this man who stood up and declared “I am a man.”
The sad thing is that he had to do it. No man and no woman should have to declare their place in humanity. We were created in the image of God.
