What an amazing human being
And I just discovered he made a C in Speech in Seminary!
Now that is a lesson for us all;
Maybe everyone won't appreciate our efforts
But don't give up.
Having grown up in the rural South
During the time of the Marches and the Segregation
I was determined when I had children
They would understand that
The color of your skin, your ethnicity
Your place in society
Is not something that matters.
What really matters is that you have respect
And concern for others,
That you spend time helping
Them out of the proverbial ditch.
I am proud to say that my two sons
Grew to be humans that are caring,
Responsible members of our society.
On this MLK Day, let us all strive
To make the world a better place
