On the Backs of Giants

In Memoriam: Dr. Martin Luther King (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968).

Announcement given by a visibly shaken Robert F Kennedy, who, only two months later on 6/6/68, died at the hands of a gunman, like his brother JFK. I think in many ways it was the beginning of a new dark age in modern America, one that would take us forty years to shake out of. But, here we are, 41 years later, with a populous that is tending toward progressive causes and supporting progressive leaders. We couldn't have reached here without their help, and it is important to remember that.
