What a great honor for Mr. Berry!
To Reb-arty1863, your name does not define you. Character defines a person. If you do not know what "character" means then use the dictionary. I can be named Atilla The Hun but my character proves who I am not a name that can be changed to what ever I want it to be.
To VSU: What you were "just saying"? Does not represent all people. There will always be good people in this world and bad people in this world. Users and abusers of all races, politicial affiliation, religion, sex and class status.
The reason Dr. King is celebrated is to remind EVERYONE that if it had not been for him and lots of dedicated people(some of my family members) I would not have the right to vote, I would not be treated equally, I would not have right to go to any college I choose and I have a Master's Degree. I have a great paying job because I believed that I could be better than what statistics inaccurately says I should be, since I was raised by a single mother with only a high school eduation. And yes, I had a father and knew him very well.
Dr. King made it possible for President Obama to be where he is today, because he has civil rights to run as a presidential candidate and HE WON!!! That is why Dr. King is still celebrated!!!
