Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day

If you live in the US you should already know who Martin Luther King Jr was. Some of you not from the states have probably heard of him as well. We have a day dedicated to celebrate the life of the late great Mr King. His peaceful demonstrations during the Civil Rights Movement changed this great country forever. Below you can view his most famous, I Have A Dream speech, plus a video on the life of Mr King. This will be part of our History lessons for Wednesday, as we have no school today. Hubby is feeling much better, though the sore throat lingers, and DJ was up coughing in the night. It might be a long week yet. If you would like to read a great book then you need to read, Trial, by James Patterson. It is an Alex Cross book. If you follow the Alex Cross series, then you know he is an African American in the books. Read it, it is compelling. I just finished it last night.

He was a great man who champion a lot of causes. Sad for his early demise.

I hope you had a great day and I hope everyone is feeling better soon. I have never read any of the Alex Cross novels but I like James Patterson.

Ms Ebie I am always amazed even at my age, how hate fuels a society, and love too.

Ms Anne, you should try the Alex Cross series, they are quite good.
