Today we honor the life, dedication, and achievements of one of the world's finest civil rights leader in our history of the United States of America. Our dearest Rev. Martin Luther King J.R. Wholeheartedly we honor this day in remembrance of his sacrifice to create peace, equality and justice. 

Let us never fail to think of the strength that was unshakeable in his faith. Nor disremember his ability to stand upright, firm and resolute to lead. It is us as the people of this country we call home who are the privileged ones,  to have been taught service from a man that was willing to die for what he believed. A bond with our brothers and sisters in of all creation is indeed a blessing - one that we shall not take for granted. 

Our gratitude to our beloved President Ronald Reagan for appropriately designating this day of reflection so that we can respect our friend’s legacy.  

We consider ourselves lucky to have had both these men as advocates in the human rights movement, at that time in the United States of America when discrimination was trending and out of control. In togetherness, we acknowledge how far we have come. 

A vision of hope and perhaps the beauty of just one man's dream, his purpose is permeated forever in our hearts. We are humbled by his service and grateful for his resiliency.  Today we acknowledge all those that stood by the late Rev. King, J.R. And, we thank them for their service in our present moment of today. Inspired by what we consider greatness to be, let this mantra of power in the people never leave us. 

Astonished by his mission to reverse time and proclaim justice as a mighty river. Where the waters cannot be stopped, nor will they relent. The torrent of inequality in men will not cease until the inevitable truth of value is heard. May that water hold for no one and only until complete fairness for all mankind is accomplished may it continue it's merciless course, covering all hate that exists yet.
