Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream   1 comment

Many people feel inspired by reading the “I Have A Dream” speech by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

More challenging is the letter that he wrote to clergy in Birmingham during the time that King was incarcerated there. A summary can be found in Wikipedia at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_from_Birmingham_Jail

It was in this letter that King wrote about how we are all interconnected in this world; wisdom that those who are concerned about our environment have learned from the civil rights movement. King wrote:

 “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
