    I remember very well, Martin was murdered when I was 20 years, the news of his death, I was deeply shocked. His martyrdom has changed the world and his dream began to live.

    You know. I've virtually left this site...and I am sad I won't be able to see more of this brilliant work. Do you happen to have a website, or a place I could see more of your images? If so, could you please email me in the next few days? I'd appreciate it very, very much. Beautiful.
