Dr. King

would shake his head in disgust if he were to see what Black Americans have done with the rights they were finally given as a result of his struggle. Pause to remember him and his efforts, up to and including having his life snuffed out. But the real tribute is to appreciate and make the most of the opportunities made available as a result of his efforts.
