Martin Luther King was born in Atlanta, Georgia during an era of mistrust between brothers and sisters, each holding long-standing beliefs of there being more difference than similarities among us. As I understand, tears are tears and smiles are smiles.
Everyone questions their purpose when they know their worth. Mr. King fought for his fellow pilgrims facing injustice. He accomplished first steps toward unity yet today some emphasize differences more than reality.
To accomplish justice we can first focus on the simple things of life then tackle world views. We may never agree in ideology but we can come together and I believe and share Mr. King’s dream.

So, Lincoln and King
fought the same thing
rule and will,
to watch blood spill in vain.

Lincoln was assassinated fighting for and enjoying life. He faced adversity with courage and might. So too King.
April 4, 1968.
History remembered never repeats out of respect for the noble fight. We can join these heroes by learning to understand what humanity means and uphold all men and women as created equal. There is someone in everyone’s life who needs a helping hand.
