This is also Martin Luther King Jr.’s Anniversery of his death. I think how extremely brave this man was knowing that death was imminent. He spoke out against discrimination and risked his life so that we can have a better world. Rev, King followed the non-violent strategies of Gandhi, who fought to overcome the oppression of the British in India. King was an inspiring speaker, his cadence so powerful and reassuring. I think back to the fifties and ask myself, would I be brave against german shepherd dogs, fire hoses and billy clubs? Constantly being taunted by people filled with hate? How would I fare as a person with depression? Would I ┬ábe invigorated or plain tired, sitting on the sidelines?
