men who dream

Martin Luther King, Jr. 

January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968

“What we need in the United States is not division, what we need in the United States is not hatred, what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another, feeling of justice to those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black.”  Indianapolis, Indiana, April 4th, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy

RFK was assassinated 63 days later.

    1. My generation was deeply affected by the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK JR. Very tumultuous times accompanying the Vietnam War. Yes, the hippies were ridiculed and despised by government. Like John Lennon, we had a message that nobody wanted to hear.
