Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Remember that this man wasn’t a teddy bear that said “I have a dream” over and over again when you pulled the string. He did not ask nicely for equal rights. And he was killed for standing up for what he knew was the truth. RIP one of the greatest leaders of the world.
