    On this day 43 years ago, MLK Jr. was assassinated on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, in Memphis, by James Earl Ray.

    James Earl Ray was later caught at London Heathrow Airport trying to escape to apartheid-ruled Rhodesia or South Africa, where he thought he would be welcomed as a hero for killing Dr. King.

    MLK Jr. was but one of many people who stood up and fought for the rights of the oppressed, down trodden, abused, and outcast be they women, African-Americans, GLBT individuals, the blind, the deaf, and the mute among others.

    God Bless you, Dr. King!
