Today is a very important and a beautiful occasion. I remember growing up and getting up in the morning to go to the MLK parade and it was something we did for all my life. Now I'm glad to share that experience with my daughter and niece.
I watched the history channel this morning , and they had a special on MLK and they had issues and facts about him that I didn't know or expected. Did you know that MLK cheated on his wife! I was shocked I mean that shit knocked me off my feet. I mean I don't trust any man now . LOL but anyway J. Edgar Hoover sent Ms. Coretta Scott King video tapes and cassette tapes of MLK cheating.
Even though he was just a man , it shocked the hell out of me. It didn't change what it stood for, and what he did for our people, I still have the up most respect for him and his family and especially for Ms. King for standing by her man.
Thinking of MLK has me thinking of Obama of course. He brings hope and dreams to everyone who thought there would be no hope for our people but the day finally came. I hope Ms. Barack( the first lady) can be as strong as Ms. King was , because I'm pretty sure there will be temptations and there will be people who would try to destroy them as a family and a team.
