“All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.“
—. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined non conformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.
— Martin Luther King Jr.
Today is celebrated as Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Dr. King’s actual birthday was January 15.
Bob and I recently say the movie The Butler. I don’t usually cry at movies but tears were streaming down my face the entire time. Since then I have been thinking about the young people today who did not live before or during the Civil Rights Movement. It is important that we teach them, that we show them how far we have come and stress how important it is to keep moving forward and never go back. According to the King Center website “the King Library and Archives in Atlanta is the largest repository of primary source materials on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the American Civil Rights Movement in the world.” To learn about this important time in our history http://www.thekingcenter.org/ is a good place to start.
We’ve come so far, yet we still have so far to go. Keep the dream alive!
