Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


The life of Dr. Martin Luther King can be remembered in many ways, but one of the ways I like to remember him best is to listen to his eloquent words. To hear his voice sends chills down my spine. About a year and a half ago, my daughter developed a love for his words too. I was unaware of her love for Dr. King, until I came across an unusual recording. The recording is of my daughter saying Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream Speech,” she was around 6 or 7 at the time.  She didn’t know all of the words, but she tried her best to say them correctly. Listening to her, makes me smile because when I was a little girl, like her, I dreamed of speaking to millions of people about civil rights and our love for mankind. It’s funny how we see ourselves in our children.
