Remembering Dr. King

Kids understand a lot and we knew it was about hating other people because of the color of their skin.

The New England town where we grew up was a world away from the South. But even in our town you’d hear adults say Dr. King was a troublemaker. He sure was.

We saw him in Life magazine and on the network news. Some of our teachers admired him and talked about what he was doing. A church worker from our neighborhood went off to march with him and was murdered in Alabama.

What we know today is that Martin Luther King did what was right, in a way that was right, and for reasons that were right.

That’s why he was such a great man.
