Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated 44 years ago today.

 

“Abraham, Martin and John” is a 1968 song written by Dick Holler and first recorded by Dion. It is a tribute to the memories of icons of social change, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy. It was written as a response to the assassinations of King and the younger Kennedy in April and June 1968.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

  1. He was a great man. “They” always kiil the great ones who are willing to sacrifice their own lives for the good of others. I think if Jesus Christ himself came back today he might live 6 months at the most before someone did him in.
