SONY DSCEDITOR’S NOTE: The following poem was ready to 10-year-old Trinity Barfield, a student at Manning Elementary School, during Sunday’s Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King held by the Clarendon County branch of the NAACP at Trinity AME Church in Manning.

There once was a preacher Martin Luther King
He worked day and night to hear freedom ring
From Selma to Montgomery he led the people
In the struggle to create equal rights for all people
He didn’t do slime
No bars denied
His message is right
That is in our lives
We remember his speech
I Have a Dream
He did a lot for kids like you and me
I live in a land where dreams come true
And everyone says it can happen to you
Martin had a dream that he could see
And once upon a time he was a kid like me
Like me, like you
Like you, like me
Martin had a dream that he could see
And once upon a time he was a kid like me!
