MLK: We are Approaching Social Doom

Over 40 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated and this nation lost one of the greatest leaders for peace and non-violence since Gandhi. We do not celebrate his death today, but rather his life.

Reverend King's words still resonate with reason decades later; they still inspire new generations of folks to action.

~~~~~~~~~~ Words to Live By ~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

"The time is always right to do what is right."

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom."

"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 c an never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

God bless you, Reverend King. I am glad you lived, even for such a short time during my lifetime. I wish your journey could have lasted much longer. I wish you were alive today to guide our nation and our people. We need you and your wisdom, especially your thoughts on war.
