    Sure do. 38 years ago today...Dr. King was assassinated. I remember where I was when I heard the news....I was a senior in English class.

    Peace,

    That was a sad day. I was outside playing when I heard people in my house talking really loud like they were real upset and then I found out why. It was like somebody in my family had died.

    I didn't know the hotel where that tragedy took place is/was a museum. On my list of things I hope to see in my lifetime.
