Martin Luther King Day

I'd like to wish all my friends in the U.S. a very Happy Martin Luther King day.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was martyred in the cause of rights in 1968. "Nonviolence," he preached, "is a powerful and just weapon ... which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals."

His was a voice of reason in a time of insanity, that was silenced too soon.
