    On my 20th birthday, Martin intoned,

    Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. And I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.

    the best memorial to Martin Luther King to determine who killed him and why?

    I know.  We can buy the government story.

    We can buy the government story every time.

    Do it.

  3. A most timely and important message!

    “If I am for myself, alone, then who am I?”

    Yes, we have our “personal” loves in this life, but “love” should not be limited to the personal aspect solely!  Love and care is something to be shared with all of humanity!  Are my or your needs any the different from that poor soul in Somali, Tibet, etc., wherever, people are hungry and mis-treated on this earth?  I believe that we ARE our brother’s keeper!

    Oh, and BTW, that should include US, right here in the good ole’ US of A.

    Peace — in every possible language!
