mlk

Time: From the standpoint of history, April 4, 1968 has gone down as one of the most infamous dates of the 20th century. It was on that evening, 43 years ago today, that Martin Luther King was cut down by an assassin’s bullet at a Memphis motel….

    I watched the Mountain Top speech video last night and it helped me to hold MLK and his dreams and deeds in the forefront of my thoughts today. It is also remarkable what the occasion of his speech was in light of the demonstrations that have occurred this month and are happening today across our country and the Middle East.

    Reality is, we are still striving to live up to those ideals. Don’t get discouraged, don’t become impatient and frustrated….just keep moving, keep working, because it is right, it is just, and it is our collective responsibility.

    MLK’s message is timeless, a continuing directive and inspiration to the human race. MLK was truly a gift to our world.

    Namaste.

    I remember where I was and what I was doing on that awful day 43 years ago. Thinking on what we all were deprived of on that day going forward, I was reading this morning and I would like to share the quote that I read by Dr. King.
    As we kick off this great news of the day about POTUS and his announcement, we know that the hatred will rise to another level, so this I would like to share with my family here. I hope you all do not mind me sharing this quote with you.

    “Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
    Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
    Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.”

    Dr. Martin L. King Jr.

    I love you all and again thanks so much for this lovely haven, Chipsticks.
