Remembering Martin Luther King

In one of these linked articles I read that Martin Luther King, Jr. has now been dead more years than he was alive...It is amazing to me how much time has passed since this fateful day 43 years ago. I was still in elementary school when our social studies teacher made the announcement; our class had watched a filmstrip about Dr. King that afternoon and sang, "We Shall Overcome"  at the end. This was the shocking news broadcast that evening.. Dr. King was a man just like any other man but distinguished himself like no other. I wonder what he would have to say about the bigotry being spread by Westboro?
