We must all learn to live together as brothers
or we will all perish together as fools.
We are tied together in the single garment of destiny,
caught in an inescapable network of mutuality.
And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.
For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be
until you are what you ought to be.
And you can never be what you ought to be
until I am what I ought to be.
This is the way God's universe is made...
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Whether you attend one of the many parades around the country today honoring the work of MLK, or visit a memorial built in his honor, or simply take a few moments to read some of his words, it is important that we remember that he dedicated his life to the advancement of civil rights and the abolishment of the "The Triple Evils" ~ poverty, racism and war, for the benefit of all Americans.
Let freedom ring.
