    combined with music usually touch me far greater than words alone.  Most of the songs above are part of my emotional memory and I thank you for wishing to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in this way.

    One song that came much later that I added to this cache of freedom memory songs is from Les Miserable:
    Empty Chairs and Empty Tables.  You Tube has Michael Ball's rendition during the 10th anniversary of the musical.  Always makes me think of those who have sacrificed their lives for justice.

    Wonderful diary.

    Just waitin' around for the new Amy Winehouse album
