How, do you Honor a King! Not a monarchy but A true peoples King, a civil rights King! How do you thank someone who fought for your dream before you could even close your eyes! How do you account for a man who changed your life and those of your fellow brothers, and whom in doing so, Lost his own! Today being the official Martin Luther King birth day, I was tempted to write up a short bio of a man who changed and shaped the lives of not only black Americans but all of humanity but I came to a decision that it would be unjust for me to summarise this great King in a few words. Thus, I chose to share with you my top ten MLK Quotes and challenge you to explore/educate yourself on Martin Luther King's work if your not familiar with who he is or what he did. Martin Luther King Assassination.

  •  "The time is Always Right to Do whats right".
  •  "We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools."
  • "Our Lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter".
  • "Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed".
