"When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love."
~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Stride Toward Freedom
For just a moment, celebrate the visionary, the believer, the dreamer, the good man, Martin Luther King, Jr. and pass on a little love and kindness today.
"Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me."
~Woody Guthrie This Land Is Your Land
