This is based on a photograph taken of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. leading march from Selma to Montgomery to protest lack of voting rights for African Americans. Beside King is John Lewis, Reverend Jesse Douglas, James Forman and Ralph Abernathy. March 1965. I wish I know the name of the original photographer and would be more than happy to give him or her credit.
Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. I often wondered how he summoned this much courage in facing such giant evil without ever wanting to pick up a stick, knife, gun or bombs to fight back. It is that decision which made him a million times more powerful. We could use more of that in 2018. I wonder what this nation would be like without him, and where will we be? Time for heroes, never stop fighting a good fight. Happy Birthday Dr. King.
