It’s not News, It’s History

In memory of Dr. Martin Luther King

We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now

Those of us who love peace must organize as effectively as the war hawks. As they spread the propaganda of war, we must spread the propaganda of peace. We must combine the fervor of the civil rights movement with the peace movement. We must demonstrate, teach and preach until the very foundations of our nation are shaken. We must work unceasingly to lift this nation that we love to a higher destiny, to a new plateau of compassion, to a more noble expression of humaneness.”

…There is an element of urgency in our re-directing American power. We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today.

Let the crooked places be made straight.
