Life in the Deep South, by Gabriel Aguilera

MLK Weekend 2017

It has been in the low to mid 70s the last two days. No rain until Wed. No teaching until Tuesday as we remember Dr. Martin Luther King this weekend. I bet that in heaven he laughs out loud at Tio Abe’s tawdry stories. I imagine him and Lincoln conversing, commenting on our dark days with despondency and hope, comparing them to the hard times they endured and died in. Anyway, we should all be thinking of Dr. King this weekend who, like Lincoln, was murdered in cold blood by an assassin who claimed to love America.
