On this day

In 1968, just before 6:00 p.m., Martin Luther King Jr., walked onto the second-floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel, outside Room 306. Two hundred yards away a sniper was lining up from a camouflage of bushes. Solomon Jones, Dr. King’s driver, said it was cold for April and thought Dr. King should bring a coat, just after that, a shot resounded and Dr. King was down. The bullet entered his chin and severed his spinal cord between the lower cervical and upper thoracic vertebrae. The wound was fatal almost instantly. James Earl Ray spent the rest of his life in prison for the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., but there is some question as to if he was actually the shooter, or if he was, did he act alone? It is a question that will probably never be answered.

Dr. King had a dream that someday all people would be judged by the ‘content of their character,’ not the color of their skin. Or their gender or their country of origin etc. That is something we can all hope for.

Happy IVGLDSW Day!
Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman’s Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ‘WOO HOO what a ride!’

Have a wonderful day!
