Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday

A few days ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would’ve turned 85 years old. Today, our nation celebrates his birthday with service. I also wanted to honor Coretta Scott King.  I can only imagine how hard it was for wives of murdered activists  (Betty Shabazz, Myrlie Evers-Williams, etc.).  These women had to shoulder the responsibility of their husbands work, as well as raise children on their own. I’m sure they were also under constant fear of someone killing them/their children.  The sacrifices  of the Civil Rights Movement can never be repaid…

Rest in peace Dr. King and Mrs. Coretta Scott King
