Reflecting on Martin Luther King's Message of Peace and Justice
"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." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, throughout the US, people are commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, with messages of peace, civil and human rights, mutual responsibility and service. We encourage you, wherever you may live in the world, to take a moment to reflect on his words, his life and his example.
