Martin Luther King Jr.
Did you know his legal name at birth was Michael King?
His father had it changed later and said it was recorded incorrectly. I just thought this was an interesting wiki fact.
I love this man and everything he stands for; nonviolence, civil rights, racial equality, leading the Montgomery Bus Boycott (plus so many others), giving passionate sermons at church...
but most of all I love his speech at the 1963 March on Washington.
"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
I have a dream."
I am so thankful for advocates like this wonderful man.
I am so happy to see how far our country has come, and filled with anticipation to see where it will go!
It is going to be a beautiful week full of inspiring dreams :)
