On this day I have a birthday with a very special American, Martin Luther King, which I’ve shared for 76 years.  In remembrance, I share an excellent article written by a former journalist and posted on his blog, Kiko’s House — “If Dr. King Looked Beyond The Grave Today, He Would Be Bitterly Disappointed.”

In the End,
we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Darling here in my heart, yeah I do believe
We shall overcome someday
Well we’ll walk hand in hand, we’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand someday
Darling here in my heart, yeah I do believe
We’ll walk hand in hand someday
Well we shall live in peace, we shall live in peace
We shall live in peace someday
Darling here in my heart, yeah I do believe
We shall live in peace someday
Well we are not afraid, we are not afraid
We shall overcome someday
Yeah here in my heart, I do believe
We shall overcome someday
Hey we shall overcome, we shall overcome
We shall overcome someday
Darling here in my heart, I do believe
We shall overcome someday
