Happy Birthday to Martin Luther King, Jr! I saw his birthday posted up on the Star Celeb. He was a great man! He was one of my all-time favorite American heros! I commented that if it wasn't for him, me and my lifelong friend would never have been friends. If it weren't for him, I would never have been able to fall in love with my first boyfriend. If it weren't for him, I would never have met all the wonderful African-American people who have had such a profound influence in my life. So Martin Luther King, Jr. was definately a hero in the truest sense of the word! Of course I have met some African American people who were not so good, but that is true for all races. I've met many Caucasians I wouldn't give the time of day to. But like Martin Luther King, Jr. himself implied, judge not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. It is what is inside that counts. Even Obama better get down on his knees and thank GOD such a person existed! Obama could learn a great deal from Martin Luther King, Jr.
Oh my GOD! I wonder what the people from PETA Sucks are thinking of this day? Knowing what bigots they are! Well, most of them were. Well, I don't really want to think of people like them, knowing it'll get me started again. I deleted about 100 posts imported from my old blog today! Among them were the posts about that forum. The only roasting posts I left up were the ones directed to the Bible-thumpers. Especially the one I titled "If", because I still haven't got all those questions answered. I always wanted to find a hard-core creationist that can answer those in a believable way. But so far, I never have.
I can never remember sometimes if Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday is really the 15th of January or the 16th of January!! But then again, sometimes I still think my sis Anna's birthday is on the 6th and not the 8th! I'd make a lousy wife!! Always forgetting birthdays!! The man I did marry, I had no clue when his birthday was!!! I never asked him, believe it or not!! And he never told me. I'm not good at bringing questions like that up in a conversation either. Let's face it, conversation is a game I suck at! But hanging around my friends and family, I am trying to get better.
