Today is Martin
Luther King Jr. Day. Martin Luther King Jr. has now been dead
longer than he lived. But what an extraordinary life it was.
At 33, he was
pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34,
he galvanized the nation with his "I Have a Dream" speech.
At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize. At 39, he was assassinated, but
he left a legacy of hope and inspiration that continues today. CLICK HERE
