    I happen to walk in on a documentary of Dr. Martin Luther King at my grandmother's house last night and I had to stay and watch it. We all know he was a great man, but when you really sit down and see footage of the great things he did and said, you really remember why so many people loved him. It sucks that so many people missed his point or forgot about it once he was gone. If you look at the black people in entertainment or on TV that are idolized today, most are a far cry from him and what he stood for. It's just a little sad that people who are in the spotlight get so blinded by it that they forget that there are people watching whom they are influencing in a negative way. Sure, they aknowledge him on his birthday, but the rest of the year they are doing exactly the opposite. I know that no one is perfect, but we can at least take one thing from what he has said and love eachother and respect eachother.
