Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the world's best examples of perseverance, understanding and love. Thanks to his tireless sacrifices, the world was largely loosed from the strangling grip of racism.

"God called the grandson of a slave on his father’s side, and the grandson of a man born during the Civil War on his mother’s side, and said to him: Martin Luther, speak to America about war and peace; about social justice and racial discrimination; about its obligation to the poor; and about nonviolence as a way of perfecting social change in a world of brutality and war."

- Benjamin Mays, Eulogy of Martin Luther King Jr. April, 1968
