    A man of peace with awesome speeches defending the freedoms, and lives of many young Americans. His dreams of defending the poor. equality, and changes in the way government treats its citizens was a fearless attempt, and he was well aware it could cost him his life. Martin Luther Kings dreams are still unfulfilled while many sill dream hoping for they will come true.

    The difference between MLK and other leaders is that he was able to step outside his own immediate situation and used his influence to speak up for ALL poor and oppressed people.

    Seems the good ol' boys (CIA, FBI) had had enough of this uppity troublemaker and finally snuffed him out.
