40 Years Ago

Do you know what today is? 40 years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered. Now as a white, Catholic, almost 40 year old Canadian girl, what does that have to do with anything in my life? Everything. Martin Luther King Jr. has been a part of my life for my whole life. I've never not knowen who he is and how important he was and his legacy still is. In his honor, I highly recommend watching Amazing Grace The Movie...although it isn't at all about him, it certainly is about his Dream.

Oh, it is an amazing movie! One of my favorites! I cannot believe it has been 40 years. I was not yet born when he was killed, but remember vividly the aftermath even many years later. He was a brave and wonderful man!
