Martin Luther King Jr.¬†(January 15, 1929¬†‚Äď April 4, 1968) was an American¬†Baptist¬†minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the¬†civil rights movement¬†from 1954 through 1968.

He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights by using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.

“I Have A Dream”



Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia.

King, both a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist, had a seismic impact on race relations in the United States, beginning in the mid-1950’s. Among many efforts, King headed the SCLC. Through his activism, he played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation, as well as the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honors. King was assassinated in April 1968, and continues to be remembered as one of the most lauded African-American leaders in history, often referenced by his 1963 speech,

“I Have a Dream.”

‚ÄúIOTD‚ÄĚ is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy ‚Äď or in easy terms ‚Äď a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!‚ÄĚ

At the end of the day ‚Ķ. ‚ÄúI have a dream: I LAVA you”!!


~~November 3, 2015~~ 


Lava is a 2014 computer-animated musical short film, produced by Pixar Animation Studios. Directed by James Ford Murphy and produced by Andrea Warren, it premiered at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival on June 14, 2014, and was theatrically released alongside Pixar’s Inside Out on June 19, 2015.

The short is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.

It is set to a song written by Murphy, and was inspired by the “isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes.”

On a tropical island in the Pacific, a lonely volcano named Uku watches the wildlife creatures frolic with their mates and hopes to find one of his own. He sings a song to the ocean each day for thousands of years, gradually venting his lava and sinking into the water, but does not realize that an undersea volcano named Lele has heard him every day and has fallen in love with him.

She emerges on the day that Uku becomes extinct, but her face is turned away and she cannot see him. Uku sinks fully into the ocean, heartbroken, but revives when he hears Lele singing his song to him.

His fires re-ignited, he erupts back to the surface, this time right next to Lele, and the two form a single island where they can be happy together.
