Mondays Offering...A Man Who Moves My Soul


The very next day
he was assassinated...

His son once said in an interview...
"My father used to say,
'I love everybody, 
I'm every man's brother.
You may not love me, 
but that's your issue...
not mine'."

I love this man....


"So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
~Martin Luther King

I believe this freedom is available to us now
BUT
we have live like we are free!
As long as we continue to live as slaves,
in fear of whatever it is that we are afraid of,
we will be slaves to those fears.
On this day
my lovelies
as we remember a great man
who stood for the equality of all
and who died standing up
for that equality,
LET FREEDOM RING
Live Free
along side a Creator that made us all
along side a Creator that loves us all
along side a Creator that sees us all

Love and Light

  2. Yes yes, he was a selfless man wasn't he. Every time I hear those famous words echo, I feel sad and all teary eyed. We've come a long way, but still so much more we need to do together, to get this world on board to practice love and respect. Still people have fears. Mostly fear of the unknown. The road is long, but I'm optimistic that we are all coming together for the good of the world. Baby steps I suppose. And faith. And using our voice.
    Thank you for honoring this great man, xxoo
