>Back in 2000, Mason Jennings wrote “Dr. King” as a tribute/dedication to Martin Luther King Jr on his album “Birds Flying Away.”
I think that today is a good time to take a step back and see where we are with our nation right now. Several decades ago, many suffered and struggled through the civil rights movement. Now, I am not a history buff (and I’m not going to sit here and use big words to sound like I know what I’m talking about), but it’d be foolish to think that we weren’t going through our own civil rights movement today. It’s a different generation and a different time — but there are people still struggling to be accepted / loved / treated as an equal today.
Take some time today to think how YOU can help make a CHANGE.
We all have dreams.
Let’s start making them a reality.
