Martin Luther King, Jr. Day ~ The Man Underneath

We mostly remember a speech, a bullet, a march, a statue, a remarkable iconic individual - and all those things are to be upheld and revered about the man - but what lay underneath is more important to me, because without that brilliant, questioning, analytical ability to connect the dots and eloquently espouse them into one cohesive truth the whole world could understand, there wouldn't have been a march, a speech, or a movement. 

 I can never say "Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day" because a bullet took him away from us. That is to be remembered as well. Words, actions, motives, bullets...all can rob and kill.
I am thankful for the soul of this man and the spirit of justice he left on this earth.
