A freedom fighter.
An avid supporter of equality before the law.
It is right and just that America has a day to celebrate this man's life, his efforts and successes in extending the American ideal of individual rights to all Americans.
All men are created equal in their inalienable rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Martin Luther King, Jr helped turn that dream into a reality.
I hope you will take time to remember and honor this man and the courage he had to stand up for freedom and truth.
