Biographies are fascinating to me. The thing on MLK on PBS last night was pretty amazing. You realize that all the great ones had to carry great burdens and suffer many sacrifices. Though he preached non-violence, many around him died violent deaths. He stayed his path. When he was shot in 1968 at the age of 39 the autopsy report said he had the heart of a 60 year old man. The stress of his burden would have soon killed him anyway. I can't imagine carrying the weight of a whole race of people, not to mention the true dream of a nation up such a steep mountain.
speaking of endurance...shout out to my wife for putting up with me and the kids all these years. To know her is to love her..HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HONEY!!
