    Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! It's a good time to reflect on the positive changes and where we need to go from here.

    He most certainly was an influential voice in the political/social advances made in the 60's.

    I believe this is his speech that I heard a lot in elementary school from the Reverend King. http://www.mecca.org/~crights/dream.html

    I have seen the promised land speech which, I believe was his last.

    I'm glad to see some people taking note of the man and the day here! The "I Have A Dream" speech is even more powerful when you learn that, somewhere around the point of "Go back to Mississippi", Dr. King departed from his prepared speech and spoke his heart instead!
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    "Only in the darkness can you see the stars."

    "In the End we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

    "Lightening makes no sound until it strikes."

    "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

    "Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness."

    "Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever. The yearning for freedom eventually manifests itself."

    “Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”

    “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

    Happy MLK day!

    This is one of my favorite holidays. Thinking of the unity of the Civil Rights movement and the hope and love that MLK represents makes me very happy.

    I was so excited to volunteer today, but alas, we don't have a workshop today.

    p.s I'm wearing my 'To Haiti with Love' t-shirt today.
