“I Have A Dream ….”

It is Monday again, and as often as I can, I just say, “Thank You!”!

And those thanks go out into the “universe” for all spirits and souls willing to accept those humble feelings of gratitude!

Not only was yesterday the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it was also the birthday of a good friend, colleague and former college buddy, Vetalle Fusilier. We had a chance to chat on the phone a bit and he mentioned he was basking in the world-wide vibes of birthday wishes sent his way, too, yesterday!

This note today will be brief only because the life and times of Dr. King says all that anything else can say … What a man …. what a person …. and he was an African American, too! I was so happy when the “King Memorial” was completed and dedicated in Washington, DC late last year just to fortify his legacy, so to speak. One of the things that impressed me most about his work was the manner in which he built upon some of the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, the well trained East Indian who studied the British system of law and worked with humility and dedication to liberate his fellow persons in his home land.

While rumors were spread by the FBI and the continual racist attacks led by then FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, sought to destroy and discredit Dr. King and his work to eliminate the most overt racist practices mainly in the Southern states but reaching as far as Delaware and Maryland, it became clear that this man literally put his life on the line to acquire “His Dream”. I can only imagine how his life must have been as he virtually awaited the day of his assassination. His many speeches, anecdotes and photographs as well as the Memorial in DC stand as a tribute to what I would have to call ” …. more than a mere human!”

Always in love and peace!

John I. Cook, Director
