Tragic end of a man who had a dream. Martin Luther King believed in peace, but was assassinated at just 39 years of age. Taken from the Weekly News March 2014.

He based his life and work on peaceful means, but was gunned down in the end. It was on April 4, 1968, that Martin Luther King was shot dead, his final speech describing his love of God and lack of fear. He had gone  to Memphis, Tennessee, to show show support for the humble sanitation workers - when weather had meant they couldn't work, the black staff were sent home with two hours' pay the white's got a full days wages. It was just the type that King tackled, though never in anger --- he rarely showed aggression, just passion.  He had grown up admiring Ghandi, especially how the Indian had made remarkable changes with non violent protests.  King had also, like Ghandi, been inspired by reading a little-known book by Leo Tolstoy of War and peace fame. Tolstoy's The Kingdom Of God is Within You showed how you could do things without resorting to methods the Lord disapprove of. Although King had been unsure of the Bible as a youngster, he had grown into a deeply-religious man, utterly convinced you could change society with the help of the Good Book and, most importantly, without violence.  Even in his final speech, referring to a bomb threat before his flight to Memphis, he said "I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. "But it doesn't matter to me now, because I've been to the mountaintop.   "And I don't mind. "Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has it's place.  "But I'm not concerned about that just now. I want to do God's will. "I've seen the promised land. "I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight, that we, as people, will get to the promised land. "So, I'm happy tonight.  Exactly a year before his death, he had spoken out against America's roll in the Vietnam war, earning himself enemies and friends worldwide. As King stepped out onto the balcony of the Lorraine hotel that day in 1968, a shot rand out, the bullet entering his cheek, smashing his jaw before travelling down his spinal chord. Dead at just 39, doctors later said he had the heart of a 60-year-old, due to the stress he had put himself under. James Earl Ray, captured at London Heathrow, confessed to the murder then withdrew it.  Sentenced to 99 years in prison, he protested his innocence his whole life, but never got out. he'd been a burglar but never used guns or hurt anybody before - his lawyers reckoned he was a "scapegoat, like Lee Harvey Oswald"  What would Martin Luther King think of America's black president today? He might be sad that it took 40 years for Barack Obama to get the top job, but, being Martin Luther King he would never have lashed out.
