JFK, Malcolm X, MLK, RFK, Muhammed Ali, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles, my heroes of the era.

Five were assassinated, one attacked and murdered in his home.

I owe a debt I can't repay to them all.

I love you Martin.
Thanks from Gordy

"I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of thermonuclear destruction.

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.

"This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant. I believe that even amid today's mortar bursts and whining bullets, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow."

I love him. My eyes still tear up reading that quote from 54 years ago.

Where are leaders like him today?
Thanks from Gordy

X was a psychopath, Ali was a racist according to the 21st century definition of the word, and Kaep is just an attention whore distracting from his weak ass play.

MLK was alright though.
Thanks from guy39, caconservative and Sabcat

MLK would only be 89 years old today. He was cut down in the prime of his life.
