Monday is Martin Luther King Day and to most children,its just a holiday.Very few know why they are getting a holiday.
Indians love(d) Martin Luther King.Because of the similarities between the circumstances and the way he believed in non violence as Gandhi did.
When I came here and learnt a lot of the background of the King family,I was so disillusioned by it all.
That got me thinking about it...Is it wrong to judge a person by their personal life ?
He fought for freedom and had a huge part in achieving it and thats what i should remember him for.Not what he did in his personal time or why he did.
How can I judge anybody?Especially since I havent done anything worth mentioning.
Every Indian visitor that comes through my home wants to visit the King center and Ebenezer Baptist church and so we go there a lot.There is a memorial outside with water around it.It is very beautiful.well,my husband decided to wash his face in the water and my father-in-law waited till he was done and then informed him thats where some of the homeless people from the shelter come to pee!
