GUEST,seth from olympia BS: Happy Martin Luther King Day (15) RE: BS: Happy Martin Luther King Day 19 Jan 11


I thank Martin Luther King when I think of the war that didb't happen in this country when thousands of Black Viet-Nam veterans returned to legally apartheid America. I was around in the sixties and seventies when racial animosity was peaking and the cities were burning, but it would have been so much worse without his example of courage,dgnity and focused non-violence, articulated with such eloquence. He was one of the last national figures who really challenged the status quo, and it cost him his life. I've been telling my kids for a long time that there was way more to him than one " I have a Dream" speech, I will also not forget that where I was living in Wyoming, his death was a cause for celebration. Long may his memeory live.
