Sojourner's Place

in honor of the man named king  

Posted by SjP in , ,

On April 4, 1968, the man we called King, was taken from our midst. For many, he was a Dreamer, for other a Drum Major, still other saw him as a savior of sorts. His message was one of freedom and equality. His calling was to do God's Will. Yet, a sniper's bullet silenced silenced this gentle soul in a attempt to silence his voice, his dream, his calling. What a futile and senseless attempt. For a dream, albeit deferred, does not always shrivel or dry up...sometimes it festers and runs...and sometimes it explodes.

1 sojourners hollin' back

Thank you for taking time to honor and remember this great man. My youngest is in 3rd grade. He has been studying MLK this past week. Each day he came home with more to tell me about MLK ... from his schooling to his marriage to his activism to his death. I appreciated his teacher very much this week. It is good to learn about true heroes when you are young...

peace, Villager
