Explanation

Martin Luther King, Jr.
(January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)


was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.
King has become a national icon in the history of modern American liberalism.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
is a United States federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around the time of King's birthday, January 15.
The floating holiday is similar to holidays set under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, though the act predated the establishment of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by 15 years.

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed on January 20, 1986. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays.
It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::



I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives,
but I will not rejoice in the death of one,
not even an enemy.

Returning hate for hate multiplies hate,
adding deeper darkness
to a night already devoid of stars.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.

New T7ES song: I Have A DRAM



Apologies to those who are bored by obsession with primitive waveforms and their unusual composition. But the thing about obsession is that you gotta keep doing it, so
on Martin Luther King Day
we have a new T7ES song:

I Have A DRAM

Nerds alone will get the joke, but did they know that Dynamic Random Access Memory was patented in the same year that MLK died?

A King born today
Not a ruler but prophet
Lost before his time

It was in his Dream
How we can live together
Character, NOT race

We’ve come a long way
Coming together as one
Dream’s not complete yet

senang rasanya didalam kehidupan sehari-hari kita selalu menciptakan hubungan romantis bersama pasangan kekasih kita, sehubungan dengan itu kita perlu menjaga
kebuguran suhu tubuh kita untuk menjalani aktifitas sehari-hari dengan mengkonsumsi berbagai suplemen untuk menjaga tubuh kita agar tetap kuat, namun untuk urusan
seksual biasanya banyak wanita yang mengeluh dengan suami mereka yang sudah loyo untuk melayani kepuasan seksual diatas ranjang, untuk itu anda perlu mencari
obat kuat perkasa yang ampuh untuk meningkatkan vitalitas pasangan
kekasih anda dengan mencoba viagra original atau
cialis 20 mg tadalafil yang sudah banyak terbukti khasiat mengatasi
berbagai masalah pria untuk urusan seksual dari beberapa daftar obat kuat vitalitas
salah satu diantaranya adalah menjadi andalan beberapa pria yang telah sukses melakukan hubungan intim dengan pasangan kekasihnya saat diranjang, bagi anda yang
