Martin Luther King

It is just about being good humans, each of us to all of us. It is about everyone pondering the road others have been down, or taken down. We contribute through our actions, words, time, how loving our community will be.   I've always thought that Dr. King took America's Christians from a child-like state, drinking milk, and inspired them, taught them, shamed them, and led them into an adult state of Solid Food.

Here are three quotes from his acceptance speech [the Nobel Peace Prize]
“Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”

“I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive good will proclaim the rule of the land. And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid."

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.—“ Martin Luther King Jr.
