Martin Luther King Jr. Assassinated 48 Years Ago Today

First time I've ever seen this beautiful photo of Jacqueline Kennedy consoling Corretta Scott King at her husband's funeral. (MLK was killed on this date in 1968.) I'll never forget this kid I went to Rhodes Junior High with telling us his uncle was James Earl Ray -- there were eight kids in total -- something I would imagine I'd have keep secret if it were the other way around. I just found my old classmate on Facebook and from what I saw it doesn't seem like he's changed much.

See rare images from that dark day in U.S. history HERE.
