King could have been President

My favorite American is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I think that he was equally as wise as all of the other great Americans, but he was much braver than they.

King’s "I Have a Dream" speech is now 50 years old, and I vividly remember that day, even though I was very young at the time.

People tend to forget that Dr. King had a Ph.D. in systematic theology, as well as being an ordained minister.

Indeed, he was a man to try to imitate, but I seriously doubt that another American will come along to equal Martin’s accomplishments.

Indeed, Martin gave his life so that America could better possess racial harmony.

In my opinion, Martin’s "Dream" speech was the greatest address to our nation that has ever been delivered.

Yes, his hope that one day his children will live in a nation that will judge them not by the color of their skin, but by the "content of their character" deeply reigns in my lasting memory.

I believe that King was so wise that had he not been assassinated he would have become president, ultimately, of the United States of America, and that was back in the 1960s, mind you.

King, indeed, was not just out for black Americans, but for all Americans, as his "Dream" speech addressed to the utmost.

Postscript: Recently, I purchased this new computer, so that all of my letters to the editor from now onwards shall be written on this baby — and no longer hand written.
