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!
