Today would have been Martin Luther King's 81st birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. sacrificed his home life and his life so that we can have equality, justice, and an opportunity for a better life. He raised public consciousness about the civil rights movement and showed the world that America was not living up to its own creed, “All Men are Created Equal.” How can America preach democracy to the world and deprive its citizens their rights.

Martin Luther King, Jr. established himself as the greatest orator in United States history. King’s “I Have a Dream’ speech still send chills down my spine. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will always have a special place in my heart. I will make sure that my children will know about Dr. King and his contributions to the world, how he paved the way for us. God willing, I will be in Washington, D.C. on the day Martin Luther King, Jr.’s National Memorial is unveiled.

Thank you Dr. Martin Luther King for making life better. I am forever grateful.

Love Always,

The first day of a new year is always exciting. It represents a new beginning a chance to make a change. As I look forward to the new year, I can only hope that whatever happens I will be mentally, spiritually, physically, and financially ready to handle life's changes.

Predicting the future is impossible but preparing for life is not. There are some changes I will make this year, God willing. I plan on making the most of each day.

I hope 2010 brings you a year full of life's joy, blessings, and love. January 1st is the start of a new year, but every morning is the start of a new day. Live for each day and not for every new year. Enjoy life!

I believe that we can solve the issues that affect us all by having constructive dialogue. Thank you for visiting A Lady's Perspective and leaving comments.

Happy New Year!
