On January 15, 1929, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta, GA and today we celebrate his birthday as well as his legacy.
Dr. King's dream lives through my Pastor Craig L. Oliver of Elizabeth Baptist Church. At Elizabeth, our mission is "To lovingly lead the lost into a relationship with Jesus Christ and to develop mature believers. We believe in Glorifying Christ by fulfilling the Great Commission and the Great Commandment = GC3. It is a blessing to hear God's Word at my church and have the opportunity to act on it by serving youth in Atlanta.

Dr. King's dream lives through me. I believe in the youth of Atlanta. One day this city will awake to see the negative light removed from the face of inner city Atlanta African-American youth males. When the high school graduation rate of African-American males increase, my name will be mentioned. When the crime rate of African-American males decreases, my name will be mentioned. I am committed to the mission of L.E.A.D.
Today is Martin Luther King Jr.'s Day and it will be celebrated in over 100 countries across the world. This is a day on and not a day off. How will you serve others today? How will you serve others throughout 2013? When you leave this world, what will be your legacy?
Today, the L.E.A.D. Ambassadors will serve again as marshalls for the Martin Luther King Day March. This is an amazing honor. May God bless our country and our leaders!
Dr. King's dream wants to live through you!
