Tomorrow would have marked Dr. Martin Luther King’s 87th birthday, had an assassin’s bullet not cut short his life to a mere 39 years.  But when you think about what he accomplished in such a short life, you can’t help but marvel at the symbolic victory he continues to win each and every year since his death.  

Within a little more than 40 years this country would elect its FIRST Black President.

The walls of segregation would come tumbling down in may places around the United States.

An African American woman would transform her TV talk show to become one of the richest and most respected personalities in the world.

And oppressed people from Australia to South Africa would use the teachings of Dr. King to dismantle the discriminatory practices used to keep them for achieving their dreams.

That’s just the short list of countless developments around the world that stemmed from the ashes of a dreamer who died on the job.

Dr. King realized that the “Cause” was greater than he could ever imagine.  And his life reminds us that we must pursue just causes and solve tough challenges that are waiting for our time and talent to tackle.  

We’ll wrestle with this challenge as we celebrate the life and legacy of a man of action for ALL times.
