Lurrrve...this Quote :

profound words by Martin Luther King, Jr.
.
.~Found out recently...that outside the U.S, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is also being observed. The Japanese city of Hiroshima holds a special banquet at the mayor's office as an act of unifying his city's call for peace with King's message of human rights. The City of Toronto, Canada observes the Day as well. And Israel has a national forest in honor of Dr. King. Let's just hope the world would embrace & fulfill the same message of 'Dreams'...

It fills me with such hope that Dr. King's message is being celebrated outside of the United States. One day, his dream may just become reality.

Thank you for sharing these profoundly meaningful words spoken by a great man.

It's so pleasing to love and be loved; why do we find it so difficult?

Wow, I had no idea his holiday was observed outside of the US! Leave it to the Japanese...they're so aware of American culture. I love it! What an awesome message to spread though!

His speech is famous in our country too. The mayor of Hiroshima, Akiba was studying at MIT at the time Dr.King was promoting his movement. He must have been so striking to Akiba, I believe. Thanks for sharing this.

Well look at that. I didn't know that it was all over the world. I think MLK Jr would be happy. =)
