Please join me in reliving these words of wisdom from one of the greatest men to walk this earth. The strength and courage it took to turn the other cheek in the face of bitter opposition still floors me. But had it not been done at that time in history than people of color would not have made the strides that allowed us to celebrate our first Black President. I'm overcome with emotion at the sacrifices made in the name of right and wrong--by blacks and whites. I join the King family in the request for a moratorium on violence as we rejoice in the King Holiday.
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
