Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here is a quote of King’s in today’s Writer’s Almanac:

“We must move past indecision to action. We must find new ways to speak for peace in Vietnam and for justice throughout the developing world, a world that borders on our doors. If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.”

I’m sorry to say, he was prophetic and correct. We are being dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.
