Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character...." Undoubtedly the most recognized sentence of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s terribly short life. Which always makes me wonder, year after year, who were those four children he mentioned in his infamous speech, and where are they now? How daunting a task if would be to fill the shoes of a revolutionary like MLKJ! But they grew up to do just that...motivational speakers, politicians, lawyers, ordained ministers, writers, and producers. How incredible is it to realize the difference in opportunity in just one generation! However one thing did not change, the tradition of peacemakers, lovers of humanity, of world- changers... but hey, that’s just a judge of character : )

"All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence. " MLKJ
