As part of an inauguration program, I spent part of MLK day with an adult group (approximatly 3/4 were African American from all over the US)at Arlington National Cemetery.

I made a special 'sidetrip' to the grave of Medgar Evers, which was decorated with lovely flowers and stones left by others who had paid their respects.

Standing at his gravesite, we could see the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol and the significance of the struggle and sacrifices were apparent to all; indeed, they were not in vain.

Martin Luther King Jr. greatly influenced my thoughts and my writings. I won't forget to include some parts of his speech in my term papers.

Thank you for your site, first I admit that its design is really marvelous; in general I like green and woody colors in general. I’ve remembered how much I was interested in history at school. I’ll use the info for my custom term papers.

Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick note to express my thanks. I've been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up a ton of good information as well as enjoyed the way you've structured your site. I am attempting to run my own blog but I think its too general and I want to focus more on smaller topics. Being all things to all people is not all that its cracked up to be.
