My Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King. Credit for video slides goes to National Geographic’s Kids website.
The Stringband at First Covenant Church in Seattle led our congregation in the hymn We Shall Overcome yesterday, but I wasn’t able to be there to sing along. In defiance of the flu, I crawled out of bed last night and sang it once through into my iPhone, then went back to bed.
This morning, these ten panels showing the life of Dr. King from National Geographic’s Kids website materialized in front of me, and I mashed them up to the ten verses of the hymn that I’d sung into my phone. They matched rather too well. My apologies to National Geographic for borrowing without asking. I hope this endorsement goes a ways toward atonement. 🙂
