Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated 40 years ago today. He is being remembered not only as a historical figure but a dynamic human being that forever changed the landscape of American society, unfortunately the full scope of his views have been widely ignored since his passing.

    I was waiting for your to acknowledge his passing.

    He was DEEP and had wisdom, intelligence, compassion, and VISION beyond his years and this world. His influence on our country and the world lives on – a true legacy. I don’t really have any personal heroes, but the more I read about him and study his speeches and writings, the deeper my respect and admiration for him grows. Rest in PEACE, Martin.

    I was listening to WHUR 96.3 and they were playing one of his speeches. I must say that until a few years ago I didn’t really understand the impact he and his words had/have on not just black people but people of all races.

    He was very eloquent in how he delivered all of his speeches. His words have a way of making you not just listen but also HEAR what he is saying. He was way before his time. He spoke of not using violence as a way to make your opinions, thoughts and feelings known. If he was still alive I believe he would have an even greater impact on society as a whole.

    He’s the greatest guy in american history. We will remember him for ever. Just a moment ago, I’ve also seen some topics at the celeb club seekwealthy.com. He is also the most important guy for our topics.

    The Today Show did an excellent show in tribute to him this morning. It was a great piece in rememberance of this truly historic man.

    Hopefully our country has learned a lot from Dr. King and we will not have to go down that road again. Many believe that Barack Obama will be assasinated (like Dr. King was) if he becomes president but my prayers are that America has will accept and move on, something Dr. King would have wanted if he were still here. Good man.

    I’m really mad I didn’t take this day off…but I’mma sit here and do absolutely nothing but surf the net.

    Praises to the King…the real King.

    Martin can rest well now…we have Obama taking the helm!

    Just imagine if he was alive today. He may have been president of this country, or even inspired other minorities to run. Rap music probably wouldnt have the same lyrics as today. Its seem that black people lost their way when Malcolm and Martin were killed and it is sad. We call each other the N word now more than ever and most of black fathers dont take care of their families. Its sad, but we must change our ways people. Stop living for today, and preserve for your childrens future. that would be a good start
