When Martin Luther King was assassinated, I was 11 years old. I didn't become aware of him until I enlisted in the Army, and my black buddies would tell me about him. Since April 4, 1968, when the dreamer was killed, the dream lived on for a while, but lately, the dream seems to have died. Dr. King's words of wisdom have been ignored, and the opposite is being practiced. He was partially correct when he said; “You can kill the dreamer, but you can’t kill the dream.” True, until the dream goes opposite of political ideology, and then, it and anybody fostering the dream must also be assassinated. We must carry out Dr. King's dream and not be afraid to confront those that oppose it.
