Reflecting on Dr. Martin Luther King, 89 Years After His Birth

January 15, 2018

In reflection, on this actual birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King 89 years ago, numbers and time come into my mind, regarding a truly great man and contributor to the cause of civil and human rights.

This is the first time Dr. King’s January 15th birthday has fallen on a Monday, the day it is celebrated, since 2007.

At that point nearly 39 years had passed since Martin’s death. He was only 39 years old, an assassin’s bullets ending his life in tragic fashion, no Jack Benny joke, regarding always being 39.

Now soon 50 years will have passed, and I pause this day, not talking “slots,” but, to remember a truly inspiring, great person in Dr. Martin Luther King.
