Dear Dr. King III

Dear Dr. King,
What made you become a reformer and leader?
Was it courage?
Was it power?
What was your real dream?
What made you tell the truth?
White people said you lied,
but you didn't.
You told every Black person your real dream!
For all the things you did in your life you are blessed.
Kyle, age 7

Thanks Angel, this is touching. Perhaps that will be my daughter in 2 years.

Are those the questions that a prophetic voice asks themselves all the time. What made me do it? Why did I become it? Why did I have to tell the truth?

All we know is that, it's like fire, shut up in our bones!

Oh Jazztheo! you just don't know how often I have felt, said or sang that very thing!
