Respect yourself

Entry #202

I've always had great respect for Dr King. He took on a corrupt system and changed it against all odds. And he was a social conservative like myself, against abortion and for prayer in school and personal responsibility and what have you.
I also have deep respect for his niece, Dr Alveda King, who carries on his legacy and his work. There are many in the civil rights movement that I admire and who are great role models for young people of today.
One of them is Star Parker, founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a 501(c)(3) non-profit think tank which promotes market based public policy to fight poverty.
She has an amazing rags to riches story, rising from a welfare mom to accomplished author and much more. Her book, Uncle Sam's Plantation, is one of her best. She is working on her new book now titled: How the Poor Get Rich.
You can learn more about her at:   http://www.urbancure.org/starparker.asp
But today we honor the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
God bless him.

Agree with rdgrnr. Martin Luther King was a great man and "they" mowed him down. Regarding fixing the wording on the monument - why don't they just change it to read " He was..." instead of "I was". Seems an easy fix.

Had the courage and Respect to have " His Words " vibrate the world..!
His death was totally uncalled for. But, " His Words " will live on for all to reflect upon..!
