Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day being celebrated in the U.S. today, I was reminded of a music video I posted awhile back. I pray the change MLK Jr. brought through his nonviolent revolution will propel not mere idealism, but concrete nonviolent resolutions to the brokenness and violence our world continues to endure.

Thanks for the link Len!

Interesting comparison - reveals how difficult change can come when you're working within the system (Obama). Particularly ironic that while indebted to the legacy of MLK for getting into the White House, Obama at the same time aligns himself to society in ways contradictory to MLK vision. I don't envy his position one bit...
