Death day: April 4, 1968-(assassinated)
He is the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace prize.
A human rights icon.An advocate to end racial equality and discrimination through non-violent means.
I have not known him before I join the movement on search for social justice and equal civil rights.He is famous as I read some of his inspirational quotes on a book or in magazines or encyclopedia ,and lastly in a webpage.
A man who stood up for the freedom and equal treatment for all citizens of America. I am not an American but I firmly believed that his ideas and principles are morally correct.That what he has done during his time was remarkable and brilliant.He has used his talent in speech and become the voice of those who are oppressed.The voice for the voiceless.We love freedom,personally.We love freedom but the question is are we willing to die for it ?
It's January 15,2010 today and it's his birthday.It is with utmost honor to thank him of his contribution to social justice and equal rights .It's a good thing to remember the person who speak before us so that freedom and civil rights we are enjoying today can be attained.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Spread love and peace and let freedom ring. I hope many will answer to your call.You will always be remembered.You are immortal
Some of the best line of his speech " I have a dream"
- "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'"
- "I have a dream that my four little 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."
- "Let freedom ring. And when this happens, and when we allow freedom 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!"
