MLK Day

"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love." (December 11, 1964)

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." (Strength to Love, 1963)

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. " (Strength to Love, 1963)

- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1929 - 1968
