Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."

Martin Luther King,Jr.

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I consider this to be the best speech in human history. I listen to it every year, and it always gives me chills.

Nice photo.

How sad it is to read that first quote and reflect upon our current political climate. Lets hope we're headed for a change.
