Martin Luther King Day
In commemoration of Martin Luther King, I have posted his open letter to clergyman from his imprisonment in the Birmingham jail. It's a powerful, powerful paper.
It's his statement to those clergy that felt the battle for racial equality should be fought in the courts. Dr. King believed that non-violent protest, in the vein of Gandhi, was more productive. That to use the courts was to "wait" and there was no time left for the people to wait for equality. Dr King said that civil disobedience was justified, faced with unjust laws, and that "one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws."
His profound quote in this letter, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," is profound still today.
So, Monday, we honor this great man, whose live was cut down too soon. Thank you, Dr. King.
