Happy Birthday Dr. King

Happy Birthday Doc

Just wanted to holla at you today on your actual birthday before all the madness gets started on your holiday (you know how we do). Although we seem to be getting better we still seem to be struggling with how to celebrate your holiday on Monday. We still ain't figured out whether to barbecue or go shopping.

But I guess this thing in Haiti will give folks plenty of projects to take on if they choose to get involved by giving a day of service. You know I feel like if you hadn't been, you know, assassinated in the prime of your life, you would have led the movement across international borders. I'm guessing after the US you probably would have addressed South Africa first but I'm thinking Haiti would surely have been pretty high on the list of issues to take on. Well maybe we can use this latest tragedy in Haiti to try to bring a little social justice to the island of Hispaniola. It would be a crime to simply put the Haitian society back where it was before the earthquake. Maybe this is an opportunity to make the world a better place by building a better Haiti.

That's about it from here. I am still doing what I can everyday (well, most days) to make sure your sacrifices were not in vain.

Peace, Love and Blessings,

Your disciple in word, deed and spirit, jacked UP.
