Dr. King

I am currently reading The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. I have not spent a ton of time reading things written by him. Interesting, refreshing, & inspiring.

Riding in the back of the new, blue truck.
Beautiful faces on the first day back to school. 
Made a stop at the bus crash site early one morning.
Sun setting, storm blowing in on a drive back from Port Au Prince.
"Cannot we agree that the time has indeed come for an all-out war on poverty...
We have, it seems, shut the poor out of our minds and driven them from the mainstream of our society. We have allowed the poor to become invisible, and we have become angry when they make their presence felt. But just as nonviolence has exposed the ugliness of racial injustice, we must now find ways to expose and heal the sickness of poverty- not just its symptoms, but its basic causes."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
