MLK reflection

I have often seen the Martin Luther King Jr. quote below:

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

But I have never actually read the document from which it was extracted. Here is a link to MLK Jr's Letter from a Birmingham Jail, in its entirety (in case you want to take a look see on this day of observance):

My MLK day moment:
Yesterday we had members of the Ebenezer Bapist church choir (3 women singers, a piano player, and a sax player) as guests at our church. They were awesome!
After two very moving songs which they performed we all stood, held hands, and sang We Shall Overcome.
I have been singing that song for 60 years, but in light of recent event, the music I had just heard, and what my new chirch means to me, I had tears rolling down my face as did many others in the congregation.
Love, Mom

Wow! Thanks for sharing that, Pat. And thanks for the inspiration, Beth.

Happy MLK Day to everybody.
