Two Short Videos Honoring Two Great Men...



I find both of these videos really moving. The one below shows Nina Simone singing a song (which she and the band had just learned) honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, jr just three days after his assassination.  

And the very short clip above shows the humility of our president...a man who holds one of the most powerful positions in the world yet is still moved by the people who elected him to be there. As he walked up the steps into the capitol building--just after his inaugural speech--he turned and paused...he wanted to see the people who were there to support him. As his vice president and other members of the congress walked past him he can be heard saying, "wait, I want to take a look...I'm not going to see this again."

Why? (The King of Love is Dead) from Nina Simone on Vimeo.

Urban Simplicity.
