A day late, but better late than never…

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. The blogosphere has been awash with comment and tributes. Suffice to say, I have a lot of respect and admiration for the life of MLK, he is someone whose words inspire me deeply. I’m going to let his words outlast mine…

One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means. How much longer must we play at deadly war games before we heed the plaintive pleas of the unnumbered dead and maimed of past wars?”
