Celebrate the Dream
This has been an amazing day. The Martin Luther King Prayer Breakfast this morning was a stirring moment of reflection, prayer, and sense of purpose. This is the second time MLK day coincided with a Presidential election, the first being Bill Clinton’s second inauguration in 1977.
On his day I am forever reminded and embrace Mama’s phone called the day MLK was killed in Memphis. I was away at college and she called me and said “Dr. King has been shot while standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel here in Memphis and this city is closed and in a state of turmoil". I immediately turned on the radio and later learned that he died.
Enjoy the holiday. I am watching the inaguration. Keep the dream alive!
Peace, love, and art
