50 years ago today, at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis Tennessee at 7:05 pm a single bullet took the life of Martin Luther King Jr., an incredibly strong and powerful man that said, "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal." "That all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"
He wanted to show that no dream is too big, that everyone should be able to make their dream a reality, and believe that they deserve to. So many people were against Martin Luther King Jr. and laughed in his face, but he kept on pursuing the fight for freedom. The chance to give a voice to those who were afraid to speak up,but had something great to say. Even though he is no longer with us, he is still inspiring people to follow their dreams, and fight for what they believe in. He made a statement, and an impact on people that will live on through the generations of fighters and believers just like him.
Recently, the creator and founder of Justifeyed LLC, Marcus Evans
drove though the states and the thousand miles on the highways to where Martin Luther King Jr. stood and declared,
"I have a dream" Marcus too has a dream. A dream that the safety system he created for the great people of this nation , is put in the hands of every American so they can walk around with a sense of security. That those with disabilities can use the 911 system the same way everyone else does, and receive the help everyone else does just as quickly. There are 48.9 million people in the United States that have a disability, including the man who went to Washington D.C. to speak up for those people, and show all the states along the way what he has created, to benefit everyone and make it more effective when calling 911.
A huge thank you and congratulations to Martin Luther King Jr. for inspiring Marcus and people just like him to pursue their dreams. His voice and his dream are carried on through those that fight for equality and freedom today. His sacrifice of life, paved the way for those who have a dream, to make them a reality. As Marcus Evans stated "They may kill your body, but they can't kill your dream."
