Thanks to a Man I Never Met…..

Today I give thanks to a man I never met.  His presence soothed a wounded nation and galvanized a community that felt belittled, besieged and browbeaten.  His presence led to change that allows me liberties that I now take for granted.  When his life was taken from him, it was his lack of presence that moved a nation to reform laws to truly reflect its pledge for “….liberty and justice for all”.

So today, I give thanks to a man I never met, but who  has inspired me for as long as I remember.  Thank you Dr. King for letting me know that anything I can dream can become reality. I truly believe it is the hope of what can happen that drives us through life.  And it is that hope that I pray everyone feels today…..
