    I like that..the poor are the barometer of recovery..Amen!
    Forthright and clearly spoken..”war no more!” amen to that too!!

  • Maureen Gribbroek

    And I agree with you, Soncerae! It has been so revealing to ponder what Dr. King expressed so long ago, linking capitalism, racism and militarism. I believe the man was truly a prophet, speaking truth to power. “As you do to the least of them, you do to me!”

  • D. Meadows

    I do believe that King was commited non-violence philosophically–but I also think that that position tends to caricature. After bringing the movement to the North, I believe we see a more radicalized King who sensed that on some level an un-critical non-violence would not suffice in all situations.
