40 years gone

But what a difference he made, and continues to make, to America and the world.

"I Have Seen the Promised Land" -- The ground-breaking Time Magazine article on the last days of Dr. King's life.

Christine King Farris, Dr. King's sister, has never spoken publicly about her brother's death, or the ensuing tragedies that befell their family, until this article -- "Sister remembers 'horrible moment' King was killed."

Thanks to The Bubs for pointing out these online articles to me.

Great articles! My mom was saying it doesn't seem like it's been 40 years.

Next time you're in Memphis, you must visit the Lorrane Motel. It's now The Civil Rights Museum. What an inspirational and sad place...all at the same time.

Thanks for the links.
