MLK - For The Last Time

I reckon MLK is overrated. Yeah I know that's a heavy statement, but I really believe that the guy never went in for all of this - all the acclaim. I reckon he just wanted to contribute to justice. So don't get me wrong, his efforts for real justice, not just civil rights, are rightfully documented in history. Yet he himself is not as lauded as the publicity would suggest.

For all that, though, he was a great orator and shared with his audience the whole point of living - and that's to live for each other to experience real freedom and real justice.

That's just my opinion.

As you cogitate take in bits of his brilliant last speech before his fatal ending.

Sleep well MLK.
