"Most of you have no idea what Martin Luther King actually did."

On this day in America when we observe Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, I offer this memorial. It is probably very different from most of what you will read today. Here's an excerpt:

At this point, I would like to remind everyone exactly what Martin Luther King did, and it wasn't that he "marched" or gave a great speech.

My father told me with a sort of cold fury, "Dr. King ended the terror of living in the south."

Please let this sink in and and take my word and the word of my late father on this.  If you are a white person who has always lived in the U.S. and never under a brutal dictatorship, you probably don't know what my father was talking about.  

But this is what the great Dr. Martin Luther King accomplished.  Not that he marched, nor that he gave speeches.

He ended the terror of living as a black person, especially in the south.

I'm guessing that most of you, especially those having come fresh from seeing "The Help," may not understand what this was all about.  But living in the south (and in parts of the mid west and in many ghettos of the north) was living under terrorism.  

It wasn't that black people had to use a separate drinking fountain or couldn't sit at lunch counters, or had to sit in the back of the bus.  

Please read it to the end. It is worth it.

Here's the full article: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/29/1011562/-Most-of-you-have-no-idea-what-Martin-Luther-King-actually-did#

When was the last time you burned a DVD so you could watch a video on your TV? Or set up a laptop on the living room carpet, cables strewn about, so you could watch a video on the big screen? That's all becoming old hat, thanks to apps like AllCast.

These thoughts and opinions are my own, and not that of my employer

"You know that point in your life when you realize that the home you grew up in isn’t really your home anymore? And all of a sudden, even though you have a place where you put your shit, the idea of ‘home’ is gone… It just kind of happens one day and it’s gone. And you feel like you can never get it back. It’s like you feel homesick for a place that doesn't even exist. But maybe it’s like this rite of passage, you know? And you won’t ever have that feeling again until you create a new idea of ‘home’ for yourself, for the family you start, for your kids. It’s like this cycle… Maybe that’s all a family really is; a group of people who miss the same imaginary place."
