Happy Birthday, MLK

Happy Birthday, Rev., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I would like to thank Deb S. for reminding me of this. I didn't remember until I went to visit her blog. She has a wonderful article. Check it out: Media By Sistrunk.

And thank you for the reminder as well. Dr. King is one of those people that it would do good to remember almost every day.

Thank you, Stephen. :-)

Thank you for the reminder.

This has me thinking of a favourite teacher, Rosalie Flux, who taught me in 1977 (I was 12). Mrs Flux and her husband were living in Washington D.C when Dr King was assasinated. Me Flux was in the NZ diplomatic service.

Mrs Flux told her class all about the curfews, what was going on out in the city, and much about the atmosphere there at the time.

This has me wondering, dear Stephen, what is the atmosphere like right now in Washington D.C., in the lead up to another very historical moment? And this time a happy moment.
Mrs Flux's lessons stay with me even now.

Care and huggles to you and your family.

The Prisoner's Wife, I was thinking the same thing. Stephen could be our own Inaugural Day correspondent. :-)

T Stephens-
All the best to you and yours.

Yes, indeed. Good to see you brother.

Deb S.-
Thank you. Correspondent. :)

I stayed clear of the crowds. I wanted to go until I found out that it was almost impossible around 7am.

I know. I was thinking the same as I watched his son.

I really enjoyed the day. Thanks.
