      Beautiful picture. Hard to believe it's been 40 years. I remember watching cartoons when the broadcast of his assassination flashed on tv. I’ll never forget that day and the many questions I had. I watched the news so much my mother had to make me stop.

        <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Is the place we are at present as a race today, as far as social acceptance, and economic mobollity a reflection of our generation utilizing the opportunities they sacrificed so that we could have. Did we use those opportunities to the best of our potential?
        Have we taken their sacrifice for granted/ have we used them so that we are satisvied withour selves?
        Wahat do you think?

            We have a tendency to celebrate averything and less of evaluate our achievements and failures. What are we going to start parcticint evaluating?

              Dudd this morning Tom Joyner noted that the majority of his listening audience were not even born during Dr. King's time and view him as some kind of "historical" figure. Having never experienced some of the outward things involved in segregation, you only know you life as your life, just as it is. Today's kids can't decry an experience they never had.

                    Well let me see...another fine point was made on the Joyner show this morning as well. He said that the Jenna 6 experience had galvanized this generation and brought them to the forefront of civil rights issues. When one has had few experiences in that area, it is hard to relate...I wouldn't say "taken it for granted", just more could not 'relate' therefore felt there was little to do in that area.
