He was a legend – a man who inspired us to dream and be more than we ever thought we could be. He was a Civil Rights Leader, a Christian and a Preacher. According to Wikipedia:

Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr., January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.

Here is a video I made to honor his memory.  You can hear the beginning of his speech in the song too!

Sons and Daughters

by MATT MAHER, JASON INGRAM, IKE NDOLO

How free is anyone, when some are still in chains
Slaves to brokenness, all this blindness
How free is anyone, when all these doubts remain
In the dead of night, no sign of the lightChild don’t grow weary, soon we will see the sun

All my brothers help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters

Join hands with everyone, don’t you hear the song we sing
Oh there might be tears, but we are more than our fears
We are marching on, but there’s a price we have to pay
For love means taking on, the weight of what was won

Child don’t grow weary, soon we will see the sun

All my brothers help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters
Help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters

We shall overcome, we shall overcome
The victory is won, oh we shall overcome
We shall overcome, we shall overcome
The victory is won, oh we shall overcome

All my brothers help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters
Help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters
