The Dream Lives On Within Us All

It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day here in the states. I wanted to do a brief post to honor this spiritual, political civil rights giant. MLK Jr. was a strong activist but he used peaceful means as his tools. He understood that two wrongs do not make a right. His status amongst other giants such as: Gandhi, Mother Theresa, The Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh is solidified.

Let us all take a moment to honor his memory with a few moments of silence. Let us dedicate the peace of that silence to the world that it might become an even better, more equal, less hateful place in which to live. Posted by Hello

Yeah, they should make it a world day. We have such dumb days over here ... and even the decent ones are tagged with dumb names, like 'Red Nose Day' = 'Comic Relief' = really: let's raise some money for the poor and starving people in this world who actually need it.
