Charlie Louvin's 2010 CD release

Unfortunately cancer has taken it’s toll on Country music legend Charlie Louvin. But he did give the devil a good run for his money and fought the good fight. Charlie Louvin and his brother Ira rode the top of the charts and hit number one in 1955. Ira lost his life ten years later in an auto accident, but Charlie, in unfailing memory of his brother Ira, pressed on for decades to bring the fans the great music that he and his brother had created.

Hi everyone! We’ve been talking about the ABOLITIONIST TOUR in the DGT lately and in here at WordPress. Thought I’d pass on to you that I’ve found a new blog that someone just started recently and it looks like they could use some help and feedback so I left a comment. Would be nice if you could too. It is called HELP FIND ME and it’s about missing persons, both adult and children.Some of these children that we hear about are unfortunately sold into the horrible child sex-trade, as is reported on the Abolitionist Tour video on our site. Still, others are abducted by someone the victim actually is close with and trusts. No two cases are the same but it is certain that if you are a parent it is your worst nightmare to have a child just vanish. So go on and check this new blog out. Give ’em some support! Thanks for your time.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

” Long Way To Go “

 
THERE WAS A MAN WHO SAID ” I HAVE A DREAM “
HE SAW NO DIFFERENCE IN COLOR AS HE WALKED OUR STREETS
HE WAS THE SAME AS YOU, YOU’RE THE SAME AS ME
PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE FOR WHAT HE BELIEVED
 
AND THEY WROTE BOOKS AND STORIES ALL ABOUT THE MAN
THEY NAMED ROADS AFTER HIM ALL ACROSS OUR LAND
KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE FOR LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS
AND WE’LL ALL SAY A  PRAYER IN THE FREE WORLD
 
( CHORUS )
 
SO WE PLEDGE OUR ALLEGIANCE AND WE STAND UP TALL
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE WORLD WE’VE GOT IT ALL
BLACK OR WHITE, YELLOW, RED HANDS SHARE THE LOAD
‘CAUSE WE’VE STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO
YES WE’VE STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO 
(  excerpt )
