"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."- Martin Luther King Jr.

Let us take a moment from our busy lives and remember the man who had the courage to stand up for his beliefs and follow through, till his last breath. If he were to be alive today, he would be celebrating his 84th birthday!







Being the die hard romantic I am, I had to look up MLK, Jr. and Correta's love story. Here are few quotes that illustrate their love for each other:
  • Martin on their first date "So you can do something else besides sing? You've got a good mind also. You have everything I ever wanted in a woman. We ought to get married someday."
  • Coretta about meeting Martin, "...he was looking for a wife. I wasn't looking for a husband, but he was a wonderful human being...I still resisted his overtures, but after he persisted, I had to pray about it...I had a dream, and in that dream, I was made to feel that I should allow myself to be open and stop fighting the relationship. That's what I did, and of course the rest is history. "
It seems as if Martin had his mind set on Correta from beginning, but Corresta was hesitant at first. I am glad that she took the chance with him! :) 
  • Martin: "I am indebted to my wife Coretta, without whose love, sacrifices, and loyalty neither life nor work would bring fulfillment. She has given me words of consolation when I needed them and a well-ordered home where Christian love is a reality."


Until next time, 
Be Inspired, Stay Inspired ...
