A significant anniversary and the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today the words of this post are not mine.

Today I invite you to read Chaplain Mike’s post over at the Internet Monk blog and some wonderful words spoken at the funeral of four little girls in Birmingham, Alabama, fifty years ago by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thank you. The words of Dr Martin Luther King Jr were moving, and beautiful. And as true today.
Sadly I think that while we have moved forward in some areas (for which I am glad) we have a looooong way to go.

For me, the greater lesson from this is not how awful racism is. It is how awful hatred is - one human being for another and shows to what depths man will sink, to appease hatred in his mind.

And fifty years on, can we imagine a world where no judgement is made. Where we live in all different, all equal diversity. Dr. Martin Luther King,Jr. would have wished this to be so.

And yet, how far have we really come when we look around....

A peaceful, hopeful day to you and all of us.

Moving indeed, I wish we were further ahead in matters of hatred. This civilisation of ours hardly deserves the term.
