If the world is there today with peace and harmony, freedom and Happiness
It is because of the noble services, selfless work done by a few great leaders
One such is Martin Luther King, Jr., whose birth day is today!
King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism
In the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial Discrimination in federal and state law.
He roared like these to take his people along with him:
- Martin Luther King Jr. skipped two grades in high school, 9th and 11th, and entered college (Moorehouse College) at the age of 15 in 1944. By 19, he received a bachelor’s degree in sociology.
- His honeymoon was spent at a funeral parlor. This was not because someone died, simply because a friend owned the parlor and offered to let him use it for his honeymoon.
- His house was once bombed. This was during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which lasted 385 days.
- Martin Luther King Jr.’s autopsy revealed that stress had taken a major toll on his body. Despite being only 39 when he passed away, one of his doctors noted that he had “the heart of a 60 year old”.
- Today over 700 streets in the Unites States are named after Martin Luther King Jr. There is one such street in almost every major city.
- King’s “I Have a Dream” speech was not his first at the Lincoln Memorial.
- King narrowly escaped an assassination attempt a decade before his death.
- Members of King’s family did not believe James Earl Ray acted alone.
- King’s mother was also slain by a bullet in 1974.
- George Washington is the only other American to have had his birthday observed as a national holiday.
Martin Luther King Jr. inspired the human race to strive for harmony among all people. His tragic death shocked the nation, but his words and his dedication to equality continue to inspire younger generations.
I hope these famous Martin Luther King Jr. quotes lift your heart and spirit.
Thus comes to an end this TALE OF THE BLOGGER 37! Today US has announced long week end for this momentous day! We shall meet as usual tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!
