A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

By Herbert Harris, Jr.

A warrior has fallen
Let us honor him
Let us be still inside
And remember,
His triumphs and his failures.

He fought the dragons of his time
Against overwhelming odds
Proudly standing
In the face of racial discrimination
And social injustice
With honesty as his shield
With character and determination
As his mighty sword.

A warrior has fallen
Let us honor him
He has waged the ultimate battle
And won.

Overcoming the final obstacle
Of this fleeting existence
To receive the ultimate reward
Eternal and everlasting life
In the hearts, and minds, and spirits
Of all whose lives were touched by him.
Who received the benefits of his counsel
And of his works.

A warrior has fallen
Let us honor him
With the gift of everlasting life
In our hearts,
In our minds,
And in our spirits.

Olivia Harris, made the original recording and video when she was a 15-year old New York City 11th grader. Since that time Olivia has graduated from Columbia University and pursues a musical career.

Olivia was excited to record "A Warrior Has Fallen" because she feels that it is important for young people to remember Dr. King’s legacy and understand his impact on the world.

Her rendition of this poem revives the art of dramatic recitation that was prevalent in American schools of the past. She hopes to have "A Warrior Has Fallen" heard by young people on radio and television stations throughout the country.
