Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed on this day, 40 years ago.

It was a shock to me when I heard on the news today that he was only 39 years old at the time. It got me thinking: Had he not been shot there is a good chance he would still be alive now. 79 years old is not at all an unusual age to reach. His reputation would most certainly be different since his would have kept doing things in these 4 decades. Who knows? He might have been President and if so, it would have been already a long time ago.

Here is food for thought. He has been dead now,-longer than he lived.
