Honoring the Rev Dr Martin Luther King, Jr

I've been thinking what I could do on this blog to honor Martin Luther King. So young to have been killed off -- age 37.

How much I too would like to believe he might have actuated. His vision remains with us; the beginning of the modern civil rights movement which did produce much from President Johnson - including voting rights.  We have those things, the achievements he was allowed, his articulated values. His voice mesmerized but it was the spirit who filled the words.  They matter.

Today was released his 1964 Nobel Prize speech. Find an interval in your day and listen:
