A True American Patriot

Today, is more than just your basic, run of the mill Monday.  Today, we honor a true patriot, man who shared the same ideals as our founding fathers, albeit many years later.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. bravely and defiantly stood up for freedom and justice, knowing all the while that in doing so, he was putting himself at great physical risk and emotional.  We don't know whether he feared for himself privately, but actions speak far louder than anything else, and this man's actions show an unwavering commitment to freedom and equality for all.

He fought for what he believed in through his words, and his dedication to nonviolence and discourse to change the wrongs of his world serves as an inspiration to me every day.  May we never disregard the lessons we can learn from this hero, and may his soul rest in peace.
