He's Still The King

36 Years Ago we lost the King of Rock N' Roll.
August 16, 1977 the world lost Elvis Presley. I wasn't alive during that time and you might not have been either but his influence and legend still lives on. He created rock n' roll and because of him we have the music that we have today. While many people make jokes about Elvis in his later years of life, he continued to hold his head up high.
 
He battled his own demons and over time lost. He not only was a musician, he was a humanitarian. The March of Dimes was one of his favorite charities among many. If you think about donating to a charity today consider the March of Dimes in his honor.
 
I've been an Elvis fan since I was a kid. I've been to Graceland multiple times and even attended an Elvis Week. If you ever get a chance to walk the same halls that Elvis once did, I highly suggest that you take it.
