    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.

    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. </div></div>The funny thing is that I have never experienced segregation myself,but I studied history and was brought up to value the sacrifice of others.

    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.
