Today is the day the United States commemorates Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday. Two days ago, January 15th, was his 82nd birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. died on April 4, 1968 and I am sure everyone knows about his life. If for some reason you have not, please read his Wikipedia page.

Today, on Google.com there is a special logo for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Andrew Davis II - "My Dream (MLK Tribute)" Song: http://www.box.net/shared/1govvkuuff Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FhIpWa6ZXA “Today the nation acknowledges the birth, life, and legend of Martin Luther King Jr. As you all know, one of the most prevalent themes in my music, namely my lead single is that I’m Living My Dream. I’m living my dream today, ALL OF US ARE, because Martin Luther King Jr. had his, lived for his, and DIED for his. In tribute of the great legacy of Martin Luther King Jr, here is a song I recorded called “My Dream (MLK)”. Enjoy. Remember. Respect. Dream.”
