Updated on January 16, 2012

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.


In memory of Martin Luther King Jr.

Today January 16 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In remembrance I am posting this in tribute of this man who had a beautiful way of words and expressing his ideas to people to love one another and to have better lives. As I watch these videos I see the power and the passion behind his words. The crowd's applause is showing the beauty in how people unite and can work together to create a better future. How beautiful is it to have this type of passion, love and unity no matter where you come from, who you are, what color of skin you have, or how much money you make. His words are poetry in motion. I hope these will inspire you as much as they did me.

      ML King was one of those rare people who can connect with the masses, full of charisma that just draws people in. I'm old enough to remember the apartied yoke that America wore with some discomfort.

      I hope his death was not in vain, but I think that there are many places that the message fell on closed ears and hearts.

      Thank you for sharing these words of MLK

      When i watched his last video, i couldn'y keep the tears from flowing, It was like he knew he would not live long. The bullet killed him but not his spirit. This was a GREAT tribute to Dr. King..Thank you..

      Caroline, Great tribute.

      I grew up in an area of my town where there were

      only African-Americans and Spanish-Americans like me.

      Why can't the world just forget about colors and

      realize we are just human beings that we see.

      Dr. Martin Luther king Jr. was beyond courageous, he was the example of a true realist, and humanitarian of his own time, and was able to create an awe inspiring speech, that will never ever be forgotten.

      I would like to say, without him, I don't think even the internet would have much purpose for us all, because with his words it has allowed much more freedoms of expression be spread amongst every place, and point across the entire globe, wherever there was injustice, his words ripped through, and inspired such a powerful ideal to conquer such evils as injustice.

      Thanks for also having the courage to share such a hub, voted up, and I'm gonna see what other juicy hubs you have to offer for sure.
