I found out the name of the Hotel where Martin Luther King was staying and I called the Hotel asking for Dr. King’s room. Much to my surprise, the Hotel operator put me through to his room and he answered the phone! I asked him about visiting the school and he said yes. He toured the school, and then went downstairs to the Refectory where a picture was taken of him seated with some of the students. I remember being seated on his left, and I believe it was the late Angelo Mongiore who had a picture taken of us, that has been published in Focus magazine.
3. Who cares again? The ideas of communism do not equal evil. To this day there are tons of prominent people who believe in those ideals and while they do not put the name of communism to it, that is what they believe or even preach. It’s a distribution of wealth and a want for everyone to contribute equally. While it doesn’t go along with the general American thinking of a free market democracy, it isn’t not an intermittently evil ideology to believe in. Anyone who thinks that being a communist means that they agree with everything done in a Stalin lead USSR, or subsequent bad communist countries, are naive.
So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire!
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York!
Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi!
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
