The Wisdom of Martin Luther King Jr.

Seeing as today my American friends celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I thought that I would offer something for them. For those who don't know, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was the great American civil rights leader who dedicated his life to furthering equal rights for all Americans.

When Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, he said: "Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."

With bloodshed and violence still such destructive forces in this world, there is much to be learned from his insight, his wisdom, and his example.

Have a good day, everyone.
