Proof Positivity: If Only

 If only I had the time to publish every bit of positive news that hits my email.  Since I try to get something out every Monday through Friday that’s not possible.  My family has the computer on the weekends and I need to spend time with my kids and other household things as well.   Maybe one day I’ll have regular help at this  blog and it will go a little more the way I want but until then…  Here is your positive news for the day:

Keep The Dream Alive


On Sunday, November 2 there will be a tribute to Martin Luther King to Feature Memphis’ First Human Aerial Art Experience at Tom Lee Park on Mississippi Riverfront.

For Memphis’ historic role in the movement for economic and social justice and to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s leadership on this issue during the 1968 sanitation workers’ strike, a partnership between labor, civil and human rights groups will create a human aerial art image – the first of its kind in Memphis – depicting Dr. King’s likeness along with the words “Keep the Dream Alive.”


Amnesty International USA  is hosting this event with a tribute to Memphis champions of civil, human and economic rights in partnership with AFSCME Local 1733, Memphis Chapter NAACP, National Civil Rights Museum, Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Southwest Tennessee Community College.


The coalition is encouraging community involvement and expects thousands to form a human aerial image of Dr. King from 2-5 p.m. at Tom Lee Park.


The  photograph will be distributed by Circle Up Now which brings together communities worldwide to create large-scale messages that can only be seen from the sky, to inspire and motivate individuals on the issues of human rights, social justice, peace and freedom.


If you’re in the area and would like to get involved you can visit Circle Up Now.
