Celebrate His Birthday But Honor His Dream
Many people speak of the dream but the question is whether their daily actions take this world one step closer or one step further away from making it a reality.
" Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. " Martin Luther King Jr., December 11, 1964
"The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers. " from 'Strength to Love,' 1963
" I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. "--- from Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech, Dec. 10, 1964
"Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men. " --- Strength to Love, 1963
