Martin Luther King Day

The national holiday in the USA for Martin Luther King Jnr. was celebrated yesterday, 21 January. He made his historic “I have a dream” speech in 1963, 3 months before John Kennedy’s assassination.

King's own murder took place on 4 April 1968. It was just weeks after he had said, “Let me close by saying that we have difficult days ahead in the struggle for justice and peace, but I will not yield to a politic of despair.” Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution

The politics of assassination and despair are still with us. So is the struggle against racism.

Once I played angels, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have angels gold. He gave me some angels online gold, he said that I could buy angels gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some cheap angels online gold.
