Illustration Friday - "Voices"

©McGraw-Hill
An oldie but it fits for the theme.
If you have never listened and watched Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's speeches, you can find them online (probably YouTube). He had a lot to say and he inspired many, even now. Sadly his voice was silenced by an assassin.

  14. NOW HOW POWERFUL IS THAT!!!! I really love this for Voices. I remember when I was a little girl my mom and dad would sit and listen to the speeches of Martin Luther King on our HI-FI! This is really very powerful. You just gave me chills with this one. It's a voice that I will never ever forget for sure. Merry Christmas my friend. He is the reason for the season. WIth Christ there is no Christmas. Hope yours is filled with much joy and peace and happiness.
