Dr. King was originally named Michael King on his birth certificate, but his father, who was also named Michael King, had a mission in mind for him. So the elder King changed both their names to Martin Luther King - and the birth documents were appropriately switched around - so his son could be called "Junior." Some people say they were both actually named Michael Luther King, so it wasn't that much of a "stretch."When the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died, his name was not held in dispute - except by white nationalist supremacists. They still are attempting to discredit him, calling him a liar, saying he was sexually ill, and that he was a communist sympathizer. However, for all intents and purposes, this cool icon of human rights turned out to be hard to track down, albeit the FBI kept close tabs on him throughout his entire adult life.He was fortuitously surrounded by an entourage of black people most of the time, who carefully maintained his history, and several well written … [Read more...] about The Rev Dr Martin Luther King, Jr
(Isaiah 11:6 KJV) The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.If ever there was a time for youth leadership development for our future, then that time is now. Homeschooling our children to give them a better education is the goal of every homeschooling parent and an additional goal should also underly your convictions - that your child be trained to lead others to follow in the right way.For those who may feel that my child is too young to learn how to lead, let me refer you to more words of wisdom on training up a child.

For thousands of years mankind has had slavery, pain, struggles and someone strong enough to stand up and lead them into hell and beyond to begin the fight. Martin Luther King Jr. and Ghandi were both men who favored a non-violent peaceful protest. Let the devil's do their worst, and show the world their brutality.However, when I look around today, I have to wonder if the time for great men and women have passed? I wonder if people are so violent, brutal, and cynical that when great humans do stand up we ignore them. Then again if they are really that great, would we be able to ignore them?I just don't think that they are here anymore. Maybe the ones who would have been great were changed.
