In Memoriam

Dr. Martin Luther King

(January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

May he rest in peace.  And may we honor his memory.

  1. that Dr. King was murdered in Memphis.

  2. Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

    Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

    Rest in peace Martin. Your words and work continue.  

  3. thanks for reminding me of this.

    Dr. King was a man striving to bring consciousness to darkness

    h/t Carl Jung

  4. We need a charismatic, inspirational, speak truth to power

    person like King today.

    We desperately need someone who can bring the truth knowers and truth hearers together in a mass movement today.

    What an inspiration!  I still cry over his words.
