Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired millions of people worldwide.

" If you can’t be a pine on the top of a hill
Be a scrub in the valley—
but be t
he best little shrub on the side of the hill
Be a bush if you can’t be a tree.
If you can’t be a highway just be a trail
If you can’t be the sun be a star
It isn’t by size that you win or fail—
Be the best of whatever you are.
And when you do this, when you do this,
you’ve mastered the length of life. (Yes)"

"A Knock at Midnight:

I still have a dream this morning:
one day all of God’s black children
will be respected like his white children.

I still have a dream this morning
that one day the lion and the lamb will lie down together,
and every man will sit under his own vine and fig tree
and none shall be afraid.

I still have a dream this morning
that one day all men everywhere will recognize
that out of one blood God made all men
to dwell upon the face of the earth.

I still have a dream this morning
(Yes, sir)
that one day every valley shall be exalted,
and every mountain and hill will be made low;
the rough places will be made plain,
and the crooked places straight;
and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together.

I still have a dream this morning
that truth will reign supreme and all of God’s children
will respect the dignity and worth of human personality.

And when this day comes the morning
stars will sing together
and the sons of God will shout for joy.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident
that all men (All right) are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable Rights,
(Yes, sir)
that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

Dear Children,

I sent the above article to Lillian Dabney in honor of Martin Luther King, who is her favorite leader as well. Indeed he inspired millions of people. Mr. Martin Luther King Jr was also a winner of Nobel peace prize .
