Martin Luther King Jr. - Thank you.

I don't think I can write anything particularly enlightening or meaningful that hasn't already been said about this extraordinary man. Today I'm just feeling deeply grateful for his dedication to justice, his example of working for change and his legacy.

In church yesterday we sang the hymn "Lift Every Voice And Sing" which is also knows as the Black National Anthem. It's a powerful song, and always brings tears to my eyes.

We also sang it the week that Obama was elected, and you may recall that Rev. Joseph Lowery drew upon it for his benediction at the inauguration.

Finally, King's most famous speech:

Thank you Rev. King. You are an example and an inspiration for all of us.
