A word about the man: MLK

Martin Luther King, Jr

 You can surf around the big left-wing blogs today and find post after post about the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., all assigning modern day meaning to his words and deeds done long before we were born.  Some posts are written by people who knew Dr. King, but most are not. 

We could engage in the same game, picking messages that support individual freedom and liberty from his speeches, but that would cheapen his memory and the sacrifice he made for this country.  We’ll let others try to tell you what he would stand for now, who he would vote for and what he really meant when he said things.  We will just provide this link to some of his greatest speeches and encourage you to read them for yourself.  We don’t think you need to be told by someone else what he meant when his words are there, for all to see.

Remember the man and what he said, not what others say about him.

    “Remember the man and what he said, not what others say about him.”

    We could apply this to so many different things today, good words to live by.
