Happy Birthday to a man who changed the world by walking his talk, and by empowering others by his example of selfless sacrifice and devotion to justice. Martin Luther King graced this earth briefly, but he left a legacy which is, and always will be, larger than life.
Last year, I had the privilege to visit the burial place of Mr. King in Atlanta, as well as his childhood home and the excellent and moving museum dedicated to his memory. It was a great day for me to visit those hallowed places, and I look forward to visiting again and again.
It is a profound day for our country---and the world---and I pause in thought in memory of one of the greatest leaders in history.
