On this day in 1968 Dr Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated in Memphis Tennessee, here is a poem written in his memory.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Poem of Remembrance.
We remember MLK,
Honoured on this special day,
He had a dream that we would stand
United together in this land,
That we would strive to find a way,
To live as friends in peace today.
He wanted each of us to see
The beauty of equality.
He taught that right overcomes wrong,
That hope can turn the weak to strong,
And showing love instead of hate,
Would make our country truly great.
His message, meant to set us free,
Was filled with hope for you and me.
So on this day let freedom ring,
As we remember Dr. King!
