Another MLK Day

Another Martin Luther King Day is upon us. While it is only a holiday in the US, it is a day that is observed by many around the world.

The US sorely needs someone like Martin Luther King Jr. to save them from themselves. It's like they are moving backwards instead of forward like the rest of the world.

We have to remember the message of non-violence that Dr. King put forward. The civil rights movement moved faster because of his message. Yes, there was violence but the movements he was involved in never resorted to the type of violence used against them and the world was better for it.

To quote RFK said on April 4th, 1968, lets learn to "tame the savageness of man."
