He was only 39 years old at the time of his murder and look at all he accomplished at such a youg age and what we hold dear the most was his passion. 1968 is a year that will live in infamy. It was a bad year in several ways - Rbt. Kennedy was shot, the cities burned...Never again 1968.

Unfortunately, his dream will never come true, as long as there's hate in mankind which there is. One day when people learn to love and accept one another for who they are maybe that dream will come true.
