I saw a great man, with great courage,
I’ve never seen anyone so brave.
This man displays his love for people,
Wondering if there’s anyone he can save.
I sat in awe, at the things he’d been through,
and still he said, I won't quit,
As long as there is someone to help,
As long as there’s another soul to get.
There really are some who give their all,
no matter what price they have to pay.
Even if it means they could lose their life,
and maybe won’t see another day.
Oh what courage I saw in this man,
This great man I saw today.
I sat there with such admiration,
to listen to what he had to say,
He spoke so boldly. he spoke so plain,
and after seeing this man,
I don’t think I’ll be the same.
Have you ever witnessed courage?
have you ever witnessed strength?
I have, because today I saw a great man.
H.S.I. (c) 2018.

This man truly displayed greatness, that's why I could have been writing these words about Christ, because he truly displayed His character. I have to say without a doubt my heart was moved. Even as I write these words I am moved.

That's how I felt when I listened to Martin Luther KIng's speeches.
