MLK HONORED "THIS DREAM TO YOU" COMING TRUE ON INAUGURATION DAY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
JANUARY 21st

This Dream To You! Coming true on Inauguration Day..

I could have run,
And tried to hide.
When God said, 
"Go against the tide." 
Preach Unity,
And never fight.
All races on earth, 
Have equal rights.
In Peace and Love, 
"I Have A Dream."
No prejudice,
0r hatred, 
Life Serene!
I could have tried,
To run and hide. 
But either way, 
I would have died.
So I chose,
To carry on.
To show in peace, 
We can be strong.
"I Have A Dream."
 It must come true!
And now God gives, 
This Dream To You..
